When I look this up in the dictionary, it's defined as "something one is happy to see." In this case, can I say, "You can't say that people with cottage cheese hanging out of their swimsuit is a sight for sore eyes?" Is there anything wrong with this sentence? Thank you for taking time to correct me.
It is more often used in the positive sense - a cute guy, something you have been waiting for a long time, a pleasant surprise.Originally Posted by Laurie K
