What do you mean by " He had one glass too many and got drunk" ?Is it correct?I found it in my textbook.Is it an idiom or what is it?
Hmmm...I don't know if it is an idiom exactly because it means what it says....a turn of phrase perhaps? Anyway, it is correct and quite common (and versatile)
I have one job too many
I have three socks too many
She has ten pies too many
He has four girlfriends too many
The original number could be anything (perhaps I have 3 jobs, but 4 is more than I can handle) but the stated number (1, 3, 10...) is the number that you have too many of. Hope that makes sense!
