Light Yourself Up!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on December 9th, 2006

A woman in a Georgia motel went to light a cigarette, but instead she shot herself.  She thought a .22 pistol was a cigarette lighter.

You could say she “lit herself up.”  That term has historical meaning.

Tucker has used the phrase, “he lit him up” when telling me the story of one of the shootings he once witnessed while in law enforcement. 

In some of those stories Tucker has said, “he lit him up,” but I had no idea what “he lit him up” really meant until Tucker explained the historical origin of the phrase.

In the old days of black powder pistols, if you shot someone at close range, you “lit him up.” Often clothing would catch fire from the blast of burning powder. After a while “lit him up” was a way of saying he shot him.

There’s a scene in a recent movie – I think it’s in Tombstone – where a guy is shot at close range by a black powder revolver and his shirt catches fire. Tucker says that’s a good example of being “lit up.” 

Now, this lady who thought the little 22 pistol in the bedside drawer was a cigarette lighter “lit herself up” in a “ruin your whole day” kinda way.

Now it’s time to light yourself up for Christmas – but in a very good way.
