Some years ago I wrote about the consternation caused to a class of mine by the expression  "as white as a sheet"; this was because they pronounced the word "shit" [which, of course, they all knew] as "sheet".

Well, now I appear to have a group of students who go on holiday on a "sheep"!  Good luck to them, say I.

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for my sheep to come in.

You'll confuse them even more now with that saying, Pat...things have changed....nowadays we have sheets of many hues and patterns! Not like the old days when only white was available. We're going to have to think up a more suitable saying!

Sheet happens in this modern age! ;)
