Funny you should say that, one of my younger colleges was talking about her spinning class (exercise bikes in the gym apparently)

I had said i thought spinning was what Rumpelstiltskin did.

She had absolutely no idea what I was talking about

Which shows that we are missing something.

For the avoidance of doubt (though Jim obviously knows what the saying means) Lewis was suggesting that someone who is confident enough that they have grown up not to worry unduly about what people might think has no need to be ashamed or enjoying fairy tales or other stories for children.
