- For Teachers
Could you tell me what does it mean "to do sth from tide to tide"? I suspect sth but I'm not sure.
People do that.
BBIAB = be back in a bit.
CRAFT = Can't remember a f**ing thing.
"from tide to tide" I guess it has something to do with time, in this case, the period between a high tide and the next high tide, which is 12 hours. So.... it could be:
You have to do something before the next high tide.
You have 12 hours to do something.

I knew what it meant, but I thought that since this is a site for learning proper English, whole words were encouraged and expected.
and now I know it too
Thank you for explanation :)

Yes, I know 'from time to time', but it's clearly 'from tide to tide' and I think it rather means '12 hours a day' or 'all the time'. What do you think?
Toplessness has never been widespread, but one incident caused that defiant women were offing their tops from tide to tide.
