My 2009 CAE students at ARCI, Rosario, Argentina

Remember that a few classes ago, Hobson's choice came up but we didn't know what it meant? Well, I came across the meaning while I was searching another word in the dictionary, and there it was! According to the dictionary, this idiom comes from Tobias Hobson, a man who hired out horses in the 17th century. He gave his customers the choice of the horse nearest the stable door or none at all.
Hope you haven't found that out while I was away. However, it good to have it in another place in case you lose it.
See you tomorrow!

Thank you very much, dear Aldi!!!!!
Yeah..., we made the comment in class, but as you have very well said, it's good to have it somewhere for everybody to remember.... :-)

Thanks for sharing, Aldana - I've learnt an idiom I didn't know. :-)
