Noooo …. don’t reach out for the leg of the person next to you, unless you’re good friends, that is. It’s true that the extract above (from the book by Javier Marias, “The Infatuations”) talks about PULLING SOMEONE’S LEG but this is a very popular idiom.
Can you work out the meaning from the text?
Use the language
Are you the sort of person to pull people’s legs? Is there a story you can share with other NOG followers?
