‘In a nutshell’....

In a few words; concisely. Summed up briefly.


Origin: The phrase originates in an ancient story, described by the Roman scholar Pliny in AD 77, that the great philosopher Cicero witnessed a copy of Homer’s epic poem the Iliad written on a piece of parchment that was quite small enough to fit into the shell of a walnut.

In a coon's age.

Def: a long time
Refers to the age of a raccoon being or appearing long.

Regions used are generally the South and the rural Mid-West. It is a bit archaic though still used.
