meant for both us and uk. Cause if people from other countries have heard from it, how is it that guys stay oblivious from it? Knowing one term doesnt mean you are sheltered from hearing (about) the other
I've maybe heard "track" at some point before, but it's definitely not what comes to mind, and it sounds really weird to my ears.
I am correct - there are no pipistrelles in my belfry
Easy quiz 2:45 never heard 'off the beaten track, I'm U.S based.'
Anyway, I've always heard off the beaten 'track'. I've heard 'path' once or twice, but always took it for a misquote. Interesting.
As an Australian always heard 'Track' never path ...... we say flog a dead horse and use 'brass tacks'..........
Burn the candle at both ends was a saying long before Roald Dahl was born!
(Not bragging of anything, but i really cant wrap my head around it. Ah there is a nice idiom too. Well actually... it sounds kinda gross and graphic..)
