Yo, I’m back! I mentioned I would add to my list of awesome British phrases, so here are some of my latest discoveries, mostly found while watching The Great British Baking Show:
- “Mad as a box of frogs”
- Translation: crazy as a container of animals who know how to hop. I had a box of frogs once. Was it mad? Yes. Yes, it was.
- “Don’t lose your rag”
- I just hate it when my rag goes missing! I blame the cat.
- “Blow me”
- Mary Berry used this phrase—-to my great surprise—-to express her enthusiasm about an inspired flavor combination. I think it means something slightly different in Britain. I had on cultural blinders, but no more.
I frickin’ love this show!
