: : I came across a two-word phrase or adjective and wasn't completely certain of the meaning. Maybe people here can shed some light. The author wrote "She was a fly-minded young woman from some well-heeled family." Fly-minded?

: I'd guess it to mean she had the brainpower of a housefly.

I'm not sure what "fly-minded" means. I couldn't find the term in my references. But I did find several different meanings for "fly" including "alert" and "brash."
