One such saying has taken on a literal meaning in my life. "Tan your hide", normally meaning a good butt whipping, now means Tanning Your Hide. Well, not YOUR hide, but my hubs' hide. Yes, you read that right, I have to tan my hubs bum/buttocks/rear end/derriere/etc. Let's just say his Halloween costume requires direct attention to his very white rear end.
The conversation we had while running errands earlier started with, "Maybe I should have you spray tan my ass," with a few bad puns thrown in, and a knowing that he will either have to sit the entire party or suffer the undoubtedly numerous gropings from our friends. The conversation ended with him saying, "Wow, I really have to take care of my ass this week." *roll eyes and groan here*
I had the butt whippings as a child, and figured someday my kids would drive me to "tanning their hides" (none so far), but I never thought I would literally be tanning my husband's hide.
What (if any) sayings have another meaning in your life?
