You know the expression the gloves are off, otherwise known as taking the gloves off, or sometimes gloves the off taking?
Well Bossy admits she didn’t really know what the expression meant, although she had some guesses, and strangely they all had to do with gloves!
As it turns out, this phrase has three very conflicting meanings inside the large research library where Bossy investigated — which is to say, Bossy went on Google.
- The gloves are off is when you no longer want to act as a gentleman in approaching an issue.
- Taking the gloves off relates to the sport of boxing, because by removing the gloves, you display the desire to resolve your problems in a less confrontational way.
- The gloves off refers to when boxers remove their gloves in order to become more serious about the damage they inflict.
And there you have it! That’s absolutely everything Bossy knows about gloves. What say you, Bossy’s council?
Then tune in four years ago when Bossy tells you absolutely everything about her night with glove. Oh, Bossy means her night with G. Love:
