Meanings

The prior post was meant to signify I was "well oiled" meaning a euphemism for saying I had had a couple of "adult beverages," which is of course another euphuism in itself. 

Euphemisms are indeed an interesting part of the vernacular of our language.  I enjoy them in my daily speech, and I find that they give color and nuance to what we say in ways that are fun.  Perhaps it is because much of the time I am in "science mode" where euphemisms ARE NOT the norm is why I like them so much in my non-work speech and writings?  I even allude to them a bit in part of my job, when I am teaching.  I find that I can slip in occasional non-standard terms or phrases when I teach.
