    Question Expressions

    There two expressions that I'd like to know the meaning:
    "drive a nail of gold"
    "put me back on mu pegs"
    My student read these two expressions on Digest Reader's and asked me the meaning of them and I didn't know it!

    Default Re: Expressions

    Can you supply the context? I haven't heard either as expressions, but 'pegs' can mean 'legs'.
