Two or three "straws" -- insight, please
Posted by KathyL on March 02, 1998 at 14:10:27:
In P&P the comment was made that "I wouldn't give two straws" (or three, can't remember) about something. I was surprised last night while watching one of the "Six Wives of Henry VIII" plays to hear the king use the same expression. Can anyone offer any insight into the phrase?
