I’m in a writers’ group with author Chris Ward. (Buy his books. He’s a wonderful writer.) On a regular basis, Chris throws out British expressions that I have to look up. So I decided to create a blog feature about it.
So, what did Chris say today?
“Broke my duck” — Originating from cricket, it comes from the phrase “to break your duck’s egg.” It means to do something for the first time. For more info, click here.
“Big girl’s blouse” — a wuss
The other day, he said something about a kip. — It means to get some sleep or take a nap.
