: : Hi, could anybody hepl me? What does it mean "to be like white on rice"? (concerning relationship of father and daughter) Thanks
: It means the two are very close, either physically (they're never apart, they travel together) or emotionally (they have a great relationship). Your phrase derives from a popular expression used when people are inseparable, seen in "They stick together like white on rice" and "I'll be on him like white on rice."
Be all over you like a bad rash. We're talking close.
