Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
“But if you haven’t dropped a parcel over the race” I said, “why are you looking so rattled?”
parcel = a collection of things (for example paper money) wrapped or boxed together
drop a parcel = lose a bunch of money at a race-course
Thanks for your efforts.
