    Smile turning into ten kinds of

    1) What do the words in bold mean?

    I'm used to my life turning into ten kinds of dog-poo. But Vin ... He could snap.

    2) Is dog-poo = poo of dog?

    Re: turning into ten kinds of

    Yes, "dog poo" is dog excrement.

    "Ten kinds of" is a way to amplify the result of something... If your in-laws are due to visit within 24 hours and your eldest son suddenly declares that he's joining a religious commune and your toilet overflows and your dog has developed a bladder control problem, you might say "I am in 10 kinds of hell!"

    Hello Ouish,

    I will never forget "Ten kinds of" after your example.

    Thanks!
