Subject: Re: [Lon] How bad is it to 'Blot one's Copybook"

You should try it some time! My mother cooked goose many times when we
were kids. We've had it here as well, being a rather small family (a
goose doesn't go very far.).
Seriously, though, "blotting one's copybook" seemed to be more
associated with sexual misconduct (e.g. getting a girlfriend pregnant)
than other types and though it might "cook your goose" in some areas, it
generally had less serious consequences.
