    Good graces?

    Hi

    What does this phrase mean exactly?

    "...sink me further in your good graces."


    Thanks!

    Re: Good graces?

    'Good graces' = 'good/positive opinion/attitude'. In your context (sinking) the you (of 'your graces') is growing to have a lower opinion of the speaker.
