    Default Regular little firebrand

    "I remember you coming here for your lessons. We used to say, 'My word, that one's got more spirits than all the rest of them put together. Regular little firebrand!'"

    What does that red sentence mean?

    If someone says "You're a regular little..." it means "you sure are a good example of ..."

    In this case, the subject and verb are omitted.

    Did you look up "firebrand" in the dictionary?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
