What a fantastic expression!!

Expression: attacher lundi avec mardi

Meaning: to button (one’s shirt/dress/jacket) wrong

Literal meaning: to button Monday with Tuesday

The French have a really expressive way of speaking that I have to admire.


I got this expression from a French Language site by Laura K Lawless. Great whether you are a beginner or an improver.
