be tickled pink
Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Miss Carter….said the children had given her some flowers....It’s a delightful gesture and Miss Carter, I may say, was tickled pink about it. (I. Murdock, The Sandcastle”)
be tickled pink = be in ruptures, be enraptured, be delighted
Re: be tickled pink
I do hope Miss Carter was not really in ruptures. ;-)
