for never in a month of Sundays, would they ever have guessed that the beautiful was really poor Cinderella who talk to the cat.

    yes, thank you! i guessed the meant would be about the sentence. but i just couldn't understand what exactly mean "in a month of Sundays", is that meant "no one Sunday in a month"?

    I have no idea what the origin of this phrase is, but it is just a saying which we use to mean absolutely never. When I think about it, I envision 30 Sundays in a row with no other days in between, but I have no idea why that has the above meaning.

    edit: It´s an idiom that means a very long time.
