A Fisherman's Tale

Some time during the night I thought of an excellent eggcorn to check up on this morning. Now I can’t remember it. But it was huge!

It happens a lot.

To me, too, many times. I’ve gotten in the habit of writing down my discoveries somewhere, just so I can remember them in the morning.

Re: A Fisherman's Tale

We can probably make that magnanimous. As kem says (comma omitted) “To me, too many times.” Any exceptions out there, people who don’t lose a lot of beautiful structures that you hear or that cross your mine? (The best perps of course lose them more quickly and with no trace.)

There is the nagging possibility, if not the high probability, that they weren’t much good.

Especially if liquorous potations had been taken some hours before.
