    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.

    Re: Slip

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