What the heck is she talking about? Ok, I'll give you an example. For all intents and purposes. That's the phrase/saying you guys all know and use. Not me, I thought it was......for all intensive purposes. Don't ask. I just did. How about this one? If you think I'm going to do _______, you have another think coming. I thought it was "you have another thing coming, that was until I read it in a book a few months back. And thanks to another book, the saying Up and At 'Em is now being said and used correctly by me. I always thought it was Up and Adam. And what that meant, I did not know. I just said it that way. I figured there was a story behind dear old Adam and I didn't really care. Now I know better. Funny thing was, that I learned it was Up and At 'em because of a child in a book. She would kid with her dad and say who is Adam? And they would laugh.
I think they were secretly laughing at me.
I'm wondering how many other saying are out there that I'm just saying wrong or using wrong or even undertanding incorrectly. I guess I'll keep reading my books and find out.
