What does hit over the head mean here:
He has bought a ring but has not "asked properly" so:
"You didn't ask me."
"You're going to make me ask you?"
"I'm an old fashioned girl."
"I'd rather just tell you and start off the right way."
"That might get you hit over the head."
I think it means he gets hit ...I mean really hit by her.
"You didn't ask me." (To marry you)
"You're going to make me ask you?" (you really wanted me to get down on bended knee and ask you?)
"I'm an old fashioned girl." (Yes, I want you ask me the traditional, romantic way.)
"I'd rather just tell you and start off the right way." (I'm not that way. I am just telling you that now it's time to get married. I give the orders. That's how our marriage will be. This is the start of me giving your orders and telling you how things are going to be.)
"That might get you hit over the head." (Sorry, that's not going to happen and you risk me getting really angry if you think our relationship will be based on you telling me how things are going to be.0
Making a threat to "hit someone over the head" is also a way of telling them to think better.
Giving your girlfriend a ring pull from an old Coke can for a wedding ring will literally get you hit over the head.
