Hi friends,

A women visited her ex-husband's gallery. She saw him painting the ceiling. And then, the conversation started like this:-

W: Well, this is a new strain
Of obsessive-compulsive.

H: The, uh, art piece projects up to the ceiling.

W: Oh, still doing anything to get a girl on her back, huh?

H: What are you doing here?

Could you please explain the bold words.

Thank you
QP

Really?

You need to inhabit the character.
This is just what it says.
Check the pronouns. It is her back, not his own.

What position are you in, if you are on your back?


Why would a man want to get a girl on her back?


Tip - it's not wrestling, sleeping or sunbathing.

Thank you for your help, That.

I is still unclear for me. I tried to think about this for a day. I tried to find out its meaning from many dictionaries, but still don't get it. Anyone knows its meaning, please help.

As Thar has suggested, think really hard about the activities that as man might wish to get an attractive young woman on her back for.

But to make it clearer for you the ex-wife is trying to suggest her ex-husband is still trying to seduce girls.


I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Imagine you want to take a good look at a painting on the ceiling?
What position would you be in?
No dictionary necessary. Whistle

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)
