    Exclamation I am just a wee bit lazy////////

    Dear Teachers

    could you please explain to me the idioms in the following :

    ( I am just a wee bit lazy)

    and what is meant by MS in the following passage

    I also love mysteries but almost never solve them on my own.
    I cold blame that on the MS (which is a brain disease, you know),
    but before I ever got the disease, I was never clever enough to
    figure out 'who done it'.

    "wee bit" = slightly or a little
    "MS" = multiple sclerosis
    "who done it" = although grammatically incorrect, a common expression that refers to a murder mystery novel or film

    I think she was saying that she was. Unfortunately your response did nothing to change that.
