I’m naming my new Blurb book: “Easy Peasy”. Its theme is electronic creating.
This is never “easy peasy”, but I’ve adopted the title because my 3 year old grandson
loves the rhyme of the phrase and the recitation has made tasks easier for him.

Even though Mark Twain used the phrase way before Google gave us references for the phrase,
the following definitions appear under the urban dictionary:

EasyPeasy Synonyms:
simple easy straightforward bob’s yer uncle cinch it’s a snap loose no sweat simple pimple uncomplicated batter bakin easy peacy easy-peacy easypeasy easy-peasy liverpool not difficult peasypeacy scousers shouldn’t be a problem

Easy Peasy
It comes from a 1970’s british TV commercial for Lemon Squeezy detergent. They were with a little girl who points out dirty greasy dishes to an adult (mom or relative) and then this adult produces Lemon Squeezy and they clean the dishes quickly. At the end of the commercial the girl says “Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy”.

Today it is a silly way to state something was or will be very easy.
I will be in an out, easy peasy.

Can you open this jar of pickles? Sure thing easy peasy.

derivation of easy peasy)

Years ago we had the advantage of looking in a dictionary which was written locally in our own language and was culturally friendly.Today we search world-wide and need to decipher which links apply to us.The internet is overwhelming.It teaches us too much. We’re dizzy scanning the info to focus only on specifics needed. There’s little space to retain anything after sifting through the icons, codes, navigation blips, history, and general TMI! Scrolling skills are imperative. “Looking behind” the means to survive. As Oliver reminded me, rhyme stabilizes. Chant relaxes. Memorization frees me to create.
Andiammo! my fellow writers and illustrators!
