Katie Bar the Door!

Jump to last reply

Would you know what this meant if someone said it to you? My husband, born and raised in the deepest of the deep south, used it last night in a phone conversation with our son (his baby has just started getting up on all 4's and trying to launch into a crawl).

Me, raised in New England, had no earthly idea what he was talking about! (Had he lost it and was he invoking Katie, our long deceased Siamese cat to somehow block a door?) Our son was equally confused, also thinking he was talking about Katie the Cat.

Our son's wife, born and raised in Texas, could be heard in the background saying, "Haven't you ever heard that expression before?!"

So...if you are familiar with this, please settle a little family discussion. Is this a common saying throughout the country or a regional (Southern) colloquialism?
