    Remember the "behind your back" thing? Here's another phrase that just doesn't do it for me.

    "Fits like a glove."

    It is a phrase I can never fully relate to... because I have never in my life been able to find a glove that fits. Granted, I never really tried that hard, other than trying on every pair of gloves I happen to come across while shopping, and I've never ever found a glove that fits the way the phrase implies. I can't relate to the phrase. Fitting the way a glove does, to me, has more of a negative implication than a positive one.

    Fits like a glove... meh [​IMG]

    "Fits like a proverbial legendary glove, a holy grail of gloves, one that actually fits."

    Well, Gordon, your HEV Suit still fits you like a glove!
    At least the glove parts do.

    Not to mention, if you take the entire number of gloves in production, and figure out how many of them actually fit you well, I would image the ratio is stunningly low.

    So for me, the phrase has no relevance anyway.

    I mean, come on, OJ's own gloves didn't even fit him. Sorry, it's just what comes to mind whenever I hear that phrase.

    And oh yeah, veho, sorry to hear about your horribly disfigured hands.

    You ever tried leather ones?
    Now those fit like a glove!

    Sadly you have to either female, a biker or a crossdresser to wear them.

    We should make a petiton to turn this phrase into "fits like a condom"

    Gloves never feel fully comfortable to me, although some have fit me quite well.
