The morning mist crawled away into the trees around the airport. I just sat there, watching my hands wander round the cockpit, checking and setting, and hoping they were doing the right things. That morning, I had grit in my veins and broken glass in my brain. I felt like something from the south end of the swamp. But my hands knew the job better than I could remember it.
Swamp as in Everglades or Okeefenokee.
it's a saying
"something from the south end of the swamp"
generally it means you are clueless and a wreck
Not sure where you come from but if you're American it's similar to the Everglades. As a verb, the word swamp can mean to totally engulf but as a noun it means very marshy land.
Hope that helps.
Don't think it's a very good analogy due to the fact that it's hard to instantly relate to the what the author is trying to describe. Maybe using "south" is a substitude for maybe "bottom" Rough as a badgers **** I would personally use...ha ha. Meaning in effect that the person is feeling a tad under the weather. Or even death warmed up is better than the orginal.
Does this mean you'd be the creature from the black lagoon?
