Not horrified at him - but at myself.
Ok, so it's the Daily Wail, but that aside . . .
"Prince Andrew was today accused of using the phrase 'n***er in the woodpile' "
I have been using that phrase all my life, but not quite the same. I thought it was, and have had used the phrase as, "knickers in the woodpile".
I thought it meant something that was out of place, and of course, you'd not expect to find knickers in the woodpile.
Why have I never been picked up on this? How many people have I inadvertently offended?
And from reading the meaning of the phrase, which is next to the article in the link, I've not even been using the phrase correctly!
Won't be saying it again.
Has anyone else had a similar unwitting faux pas? Please make me feel a little better!
