    It means nothing to me. Where did you read it?

    Re: To flirt milk

    I read it in a book about Ole Lukoie by Hans Christian Anderson.
    I have not found any phrase like that in the internet. Don't know, maybe the scan was wrong.
    Thank you for your reply.

    It's nonsense to me too.
    "To squirt sweet milk" might make sense (as a phrase, not as a thing to do).

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    (1) I googled.

    Re: To flirt milk

    By the way, it should be "into someone's eyes".

    Yes, in the book it is "children's eyes".

    ... and perhaps there's a humorous mixture of that with 'flick'. Or perhaps it's just a badly scanned 'flick'.

    And what does "to flick into someone's eyes" mean?
    P.s. This forum is great. So many replies for my question.
