This week's Sunday expression is one I first noticed while browsing through an online dictionary of British slang.
I wasn't sure I was going to go with it, but then there it appeared in the book I'm reading by Annabel Pitcher, Ketchup Clouds! I decided it was a sign, so here we go.
This week's expression is damp squib. Literally, this is a firework that does not go off because it has gotten wet.
Or... My trip to NYC was a bit of a damp squib due to the fact that I lost my wallet.
Have you ever had a damp squib moment?
