    Re: figure of speech

    Are you reading 'The Outsiders'? In that book, Ponyboy says Two-bit looks like a 'Chessy cat'. He means 'Cheshire Cat', and is referring to Two-bit's wide grin.
    The Cheshire Cat is most famous as a character in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland who grins widely and has the ability to disappear slowly until all that is left is his grin.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
