Hey hubbers, Idioms are those fun, quirky little words and sayings we use everyday that mean something different that what they say. They are metaphors really. A few everyday idioms would be "he let the cat out of the bag," or "keep your nose to the grindstone," and oh my goodness there are thousands. What is your favorite idiom? I may reesarch them and include them in a hub.
My favorite american idioms are Beat Around the Bush Bolt Blue: A Bolt from the Blue or a Bolt out of the Blue Butterflies in the stomach Can of Worms Cold Fish Cream of the Crop Duck the Issue Example of Idiomatic Expression French Kiss Picture Give Somebody a Cold Shoulder Give Somebody the axe Have a Bone to Pick with Someone His bark is worse than his bite Holy Cow: Meaning In cold Blood In the Hot Seat http://www.examplesof.com/idioms/
