@Richard S I now have disturbing visions of Sam walking along the beach in his flip flops wearing knee length white ribbed socks :(
Does anyone have a cure?
No way man, I do have proper man socks, thick woollen that only go far as to cover the ankle. To be honest I only wear them when it's cold enough to wear trousers.
Dumb sayings like "eats like a bird" which is often meant as "eats very little"
Which is totally wrong - lots of birds eat their body weight every day
"Drinks like a fish" - a LOT of fish do not "drink" the water they swim in (although there are some that do drink it)
Most absorb the water they need through their skin
They BREATH water
Or my personal favourite the misspoke "I could care less" meant as "I could NOT care less"
When someone blurts that one out I often retort "I had no idea you cared so much about ...." after which they are very puzzled.
