And, to amplify... "result in" is a phrasal verb.

You're right Britta - thanks.

"could travel" would be much better.

Café / not the brightest pebble on the beach
« Last post by Britta on Today at 03:29:09 pm »
I often come across colourful phrases that state somebody being not the best or brightest among their peers.
Unfortunately I forget them pretty quickly so I thought it might be fun to collect them in a thread. This was inspired by a recent post from Duncan...

What expressions do you know or use?

- not the brightest pebble on the beach (Duncan)
- not the brightest candle on the chandelier
- not the sharpest knife in the drawer

I have to admit that "take travel" sounds still strange to my -admittedly non-native - ear.

No, she is acknowledging, with some embarrassment, that her only child is not the brightest pebble on the beach - at least on that occasion
