On a lighter note...
In replying to my young daughter over the weekend, I ended a sentence with "...truth be told".
Once the initial shock had subsided, it left me thinking. As far as I'm aware, it's the first time that little gem has crept into my vernacular & the whole sorry episode left me worried for the future of my personal vocabulary.
Still, on the plus side, Jnr. wanted "the white team" to win, so there IS still hope in the next generation!
