Gin and Frolic

Malapropism (noun) The mistaken use of a word in place of a similar sounding one, often with an amusing effect.

Another one from my Grandma. Maybe this was the voice of experience speaking, after one too many?

    I know someone who used to call herself an alcofrolic which was not as good as this. A bit darker, perhaps…
