I wouldn’t do that in a pink fit of SundaysPosted: December 9, 2017
This was uttered by the submitter’s mum on many occasions. It is a mashup of “in a pink fit” (a tantrum or in anger) and “in a month of Sundays (under no circumstances). The mix up seems to be caused by that pesky preposition “in”.
I researched the phrase “in a pink fit” as I had never heard of it and it seems to be an Australian idiom. Any UK folks out there heard of it? A big thanks to Abigail for sending this one in.
