Losing the ability to speak

My dad, on the phone: How goes the book?
Me: Oh, you know, slowly slowly catchee monkey.
Dad: (pause). No, it’s softly softly catchee monkey.

I can’t even get my cliches straight any more. Have every sympathy for the Apprentices who keep saying things like ‘Never look a gift horse in the eye.’
