I talked to my friend a few days ago but I don't get what he meant by this - passage about compliments and slipping.
me: When I will be 99 years old.
him: That's not too far away. For you. :) (FYI- I am 28)
me: You were always so good with
compliments for me. Thanks, dear (sarcasm)
him: Sorry .I'm slipping.
Sorry, I'm slipping?
Can anyone explain it to me, please???
'Slip', usually in the progressive form means 'make a mistake', 'do something out of character'.
Emma: Brian didn't send me a birthday card this year.
Luke: He's slipping. He's normally hot on birthdays and anniversaries.
