    Slip

    If I want to use an "idiom way" to express I forgot something, which of the following is correct? Thanks much.

    1. It must have slipped my mind.

    2. It must have slipped off my mind.

    Thanks very much, Mister Micawber, but could you please explain to me why #2 isn't correct? (Just wanted to learn. Thank you again.)

    The idiom is to slip one's mind. No off; simple as that.
