We are so close to Christmas! Are you excited?
Tomorrow night, if you are as quiet as a mouse you might be able to hear the bells on Santa’s sledge.
What it means:
If somebody is as quiet as a mouse they make as little noise as possible.
When to use it:
- In any situation when someone is trying to be unnoticeable. The person often acts a lot more quietly as well, avoiding rapid movement and sometimes remaining still.
- It could be someone trying to hide to surprise a friend, a child trying to be forgoten after bringing home bad grades or even a shy person being very quiet.
Other interesting idioms:
Question of time – If something’s a question of time, it’s definitely going to happen but you just don’t know when.
Quick fix – A quick fix is an easy (usually temporary) solution.
Quiet before the Storm – It is when you know that something is about to go horribly wrong, but hasn’t just yet.
