Things I wish people would say more often
The English language… innit marvellous? Full to bursting with fabulous linguistic delights. Expressions and sayings that mean the opposite of what they appear, superficially, to be saying.
Sadly many once common sayings, phrases and idioms are dying out. Here – in no particular order – is my Top 10 of things I wish people would say more often.
- I should coco
- Not on your nellie
- Stand on me
- As right as rain
- Daft as a brush
- Bob’s your uncle
- Hunky dory
- Let’s sack all the idiots and hire good people to replace them
- Big girl’s blouse
- Neither fish nor fowl
