I had a lovely weekend, but I have no time to tell you about it. I have something that needs to be handed in today - a day late.
I'm an idiot! I hate it when I don't get things in on time... other people are counting on it! I'm so mad at myself.
I'll tell you about the weekend tomorrow. 'Till then, here's today's Forgotten English word/phrase:
Pedantic expressions which "smell of the lamp."
- Ebenezer Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 1898
Can anyone tell me what "smell of the lamp" might mean?
Must dash. Have a great day!
