Someone said it was snowing.
By the time I got to a window it had obviously quit snowing.
Couldn’t prove it by me, I was thinking.
I could sit by this window all the livelong day and I’ll bet it won’t snow.
“Livelong” or “live long day” are both old-fashioned terms and phrases seldom used in today’s dialogue.
I can’t remember the last time I heard someone say “livelong day.”
On the other hand, I was told this recently: “Well, of course, you get to feeling stiff, sitting in front of a computer all the livelong day.”
