Wombat: not a dingbat

So, yeah, I was quizzing on Friday night last and I do intend to post an article about it within the next few hours.

However, I don’t want to leave you all hanging on, waiting for the answers to those difficult dingbats I posted at the start of the weekend so that’s what this post is about.

Some of them were quite difficult, although I think that was more to do with the fact that the idiom or saying involved, in my opinion, wasn’t an idiom at all.

From what I can remember, myself and my ad-hoc partner Larry scored around 24/30 and were declared the winners. “Go team!”, as we probably should have said.

So, click on the ‘Read the rest…’ link to see the answers.

Answers (from left-to-right on each line):

  1. Seven seas
  2. Split level
  3. Forgive and forget
  4. Missing you
  5. Downtown
  6. Lucky break
  7. He’s beside himself
  8. Seethrough blouse
  9. First aid
  10. The West Indies
  11. Six feet underground
  12. Backward glance
  13. Tricycle
  14. Reading between the line
  15. Crossroads
  16. Three degrees below zero
  17. Neon lights
  18. Just between you and me
  19. One in a milion
  20. Broken promise
  21. You’re out of touch
  22. Life begins at 40
  23. Jack-in-a-box
  24. Growing economy
  25. Up before eight
  26. Just around the corner
  27. Apple pie
  28. Making up for lost time
  29. Standing ovation
  30. I understand you undertake to undermine my undertaking

Can’t say I’ve ever heard of sayings #25 (but it’s useful) or #30 (which isn’t).  What about you?
