red sky, shepherd’s pie

Thinking of
‘red sky in the morning / shepherd’s warning’,
he says ‘red sky / shepherd’s pie.

English is not his mother tongue and we love his near misses.

A blessing in disguise: a blessing in the sky.

Stark naked: starch naked.

To throw the bath water out with the baby.

Though mostly we remember the ones with a touch of the lewd:

Genetic inheritance: genital inheritance.
Dead as a dodo: dead as a dildo.

E playing the fool for the grandlittles
E playing the fool for the grand-littles (or lit-lees, as he pronounces it)
