whynotaskaudrey commented on the word clam
'Happy as a clam at high tide' is an American East Coast (Maine) expression - meaning is clear, just picture the wide-smiling shell...
Used by Sylvia Plath in Letters Home (December 14, 1962) - "here I am, in my favourite house in my favourite neighborhood, happy as a clam!"
