At present most of my dictionaries, amongst others the Larousse, are stored due to renovations. I did follow the hard print dictionary at hand, but I was hesitant on the grenouille, as at my village in France here is a lac des grenouilles and those are toads...

digging through the boxes in the storage, I soon found the Collins Robert dictionary.

To make things even more interesting:
to have a frog in once throat translates into "avoir un chat dans la gorge" thus the French have a cat in their throats...

But now the question rises whether cats, dogs, frogs and toads wear MUG's?

Members seem to be taking considerable interest in dresses lately.

So, if MIS is Men In Skirts, then MID would be Men In Dresses.

Mentioned by Skirtyscot-monopipe.

Could apply to garments that hang from the waist, or hand from the shoulders.

Skirtmanship

1. Those techniques used in managing skirts. Techniques for a life in skirts. While maintaining modesty, such techniques may apply to:

a. Sitting in skirts.

b. Getting in and out of cars.

c. Riding bicycles, or motorcycles, while skirted.

d. Picking things up off the floor.

And so on....

2. The mastery of such techniques by an individual.

In short, it's a man learning the sorts of things that girls get taught by their mothers when they were very young. Yes, I used the past tense there -- for a reason: skirts (and dresses) are largely obsolete. I've seen young women fighting with their skirts as surely as I did when I started and was trying desperately to learn the ways of the things as I didn't have a lifetime of experience -- and clearly they didn't either.

BTW, I would apply the term Skirtmanship to dresses too.

Imagine this scenario....

20-30 years from now skirts come back into fashion for women. But the female demographic with good skirt skills is old/dying off. So young women turn to... :shock: ..older males to tutor them in Skirtmanship.

I will be quoting from a post by Vince 5680.

He taught himself how to handle skirts.

"I have been very interested and experimenting with skirts for years. I have self trained in the art of wearing short skirts. It really totally different to pants".

Demonstrating his skirting skills.....

""I confided in a woman friend, who watched me as I moved around the house, sat down and picked up things from the floor etc. Her comment was that I had done better than most women do in skirts."
