The phrase ‘I would walk over hot coals for you’ is definitely losing its potency. It used to be used as an expression of undying love – romantic hyperbole, not something that you would actually do! Unless of course you were an Indian fakir, possessed of miraculous powers.
Now anyone can join in with just half an hour’s training. Wet feet and a swift and purposeful stride is all that’s required apparently.
