The action takes place in England. One woman offers the other a lift. She says:
I'll stick to forty all the way.’
Is it 40 kilometers an hour?
I hadn't heard smidge before either. Smidgen, yes!
Sticking to 40mph would either be a bit too fast, just right or far too slow depending on what kind of road you were travelling on.
If that woman offered me a lift and promised to stick to 40mph but I knew we were going to be on the motorway, I'd turn down her offer!!
I didn't use the two-syllable version because I'd no idea how to spell it!
