    i am at the shallow end of the gene pool - this phrase is used quite a lot but without context I am not 100% sure. It can mean that you are not good at something, lacking skills or certain talents.

    ex.

    I got a sewing machine from my sister Heather two yeras ago and I still struglle with simple projects. She is a wonderful seamstress and I know I am still at the shallow end of the gene pool. I will never be where she is now.


    he'd make a very handsome throw rug
    ...he would be comfortable to sit on???

    bad back - sore back, back that gets sore easily after even a small exertion.


    A. uncle, when i am king,what'll that make you(what does "what'll that make you" mean?)

    He wants to know what he should call him after he won't be a king anymore. Will he carry a different title? ( ex-King?)


    mess with somebody - play head games with somebody, interfere, disturb.

    fixer-upper - usually a house (or apartment) that is in need of repairs to bring it back up to some living standards.

    In case you were wondering what a throw rug was, forgot to mention that...a throw rug is a small size rug that is also called an accent rug or an area rug. These are usually 2x5ft, 3x6ft or somewhere there.
