Subject: fiddler's invitation
Does anyone have the history or information of the term
fiddler's invitation? The patron heard it over the weekend in
reference to an invitation that was meant in an off-hand manner.
I was not able to locate the term in any of our phrase books, the
OED, or dictionaries of slang and regional English. Any assistance
you can give would be most appreciated.
