What a great and interesting lesson Gill!!!
Just for your information and talking about theatre and expressions, here in Spain when actors go onto the stage, to wish themselves luck before a performance, instead of saying “break a leg”, they use a dirty expression, which translated into English would be “a lot of shit”. I don´t know where it comes from, but that´s what they say!!
Thank you so much Gill!!!
