What are some colloquial or slang phrases with more than one meaning?
My daughter heard my partner say “I nailed it!” To which my daughter popped her head into the room and questioned “I have been meaning to ask, what does nailed mean?”
My partner explained that she had meant ‘I got it just right’. To which my daughter asked “Then what did my friend mean when he said ‘You’re going to get nailed’ when we were playing football?”
Then we remembered there could be more than one meaning. Which led us to answering her next question of “Who does the nailing?” very carefully.
This has me pondering other everyday phrases and words where an understanding of slang and context is very helpful. Any come to mind?
