IDIOMS FOR IDIOTS (5-8)

 

Fly in the ointment – more difficult than air.

 

Lend me your ears – you can have them back tomorrow.

 

Hear a pin drop – hear a pin drop what?

 

Heart in your mouth – swallow quick.

        Oh no! I was dreading this for,... yesterday i did not put off till tomorrow that which i wished i had waited for today.

        Yours are more thought out than mine by far.

        • Michael Edwards

          Ah yes but tomorrow will be yesterday the day after whilst yesterday today was tomorrow - simples.

          ANGELA here (Clinic @ 2pm) Good Mit Vok Uncle MIKE! Love the cartoon! I know what your mean I have been accosted from a CAR (BMW !) while walking in London ! I was offered ยฃ50 ! I declined and gave Him a Gideon New Testament but not my Phone Number I was 25. He thanksd me - smiled & crawled on! Only Gentlemen drive BMWs?
          My fave is No 2. The famous Speech by Marc Anthony after the assassination of JC by Btutus et Al ! It behoves us all to listen more - especially the MINISTER for EDUCATION!

          Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
          Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐ŸคŽ

            No one's ever accosted me and I don't drive a BMW. And at my age ..........!
            Yes we should all listen - especially the Minister for Education (Frank Spencer?) who seems quite out of hos depth.

            Someone once told me, "It was so quiet you could hear a mouse drop." I guess that's mixing idioms, though. Your 4 gave me a laugh. Liked Marc Antony"s line best, "Lend me you ears - You can have them back tomorrow." Plunk it into Will's play and it is a Monty Python skit. Still laughing.... - Phil A.

              Love the idea of mixing idioms might hacve a go - thanks for the inspiration Phil. And thanks for the comment.
