I heard a new term recently. In the TV movie Page Eight, Bill Nighy insisted he was not going to “throw a wobbly.”
I sounds so much better to “throw a wobbly” than to “pitch a fit” or “have a cow”.
And it seems our friends in the Southern Hemisphere have improved in that phrase, because they prefer to “chuck a wobbly” more than “throw a wobbly”. And it is preferable.
I need to see if I can get this to catch on in my area.
