‘Sentence first’ by Stan Carey

Stan Carey’s latest blog post is entitled ”Sentence first”.

Stan says, ”For readers unfamiliar with the idiom: eat one’s words means retract what one has said, take back a statement, admit an error. So it’s similar to eating humble pie (whose origins are surprisingly visceral), and worth comparing with laughing on the other side of your face.”
