Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
“But thank God he’s tough.” “Thank God he is,” Rose agreed. “Since he was born on the wrong side of the blanket.” (Winsor’s “Wanderers Eastwards, Wanderers West”)
be born on the wrong side of the blanket = be born out of the wedlock
Thank you for your efforts.
You're right, though I'd say out of wedlock.
