"Gee I can be slow sometimes", I said to my in-laws as we were walking down the jacaranda lined streets of my cousin's neighbourhood. "I've just realised what out for the count means"
"Yes" said my father-in-law, "its to do with boxing"
Oh. Right. Of course.
I thought it had to do with Count Dracula. As in, out for the Count, so he can have his blood-sucking way with you and even THAT won't wake you up.
Boxing, of course! Makes much more sense!
