When I’m writing, I like to make sure I’m using a word or phrase correctly. If I don’t find it in my dictionary, I go to Google. Latest phrase checked: cow’s eyes. Not in the sense of dissection (lots of hits there!), but a particular look one person gives another.

Pain in the English gave a definition (“looking coy or docile yet clearly intending that the person looked at will find the looker attractive”) close to the meaning I understood, but I like to check more than one source. Mistake.

That saying — Words fail me — it’s true.
