I am a bit late for this entry…My apologies! I have been extremely busy. For instance I started doing live videos on YouTube last Friday! It was quite fun and interactive. Here is the link in case you want to check it out!
Anyways…Are you ready for our weekly idiom?
What it means:
If something is water under the bridge it belongs to the past, is unimportant or not a problem anymore.
When to use it:
- It is often used when someone has wronged you such a long time ago that it does not matter anymore.
- Something could also be water under the bridge because you have forgiven the person.
Other interesting idioms:
Wake up and smell the coffee – When someone doesn’t realise what is really happening or is not paying attention to what is going on, you can tell them to wake up and smell the coffee.
Walk on eggshells – If you have to walk on eggshells with someone, you have to be very careful as they get angry or offended easily.
Well-oiled machine – Something that functions very well is a well-oiled machine. It does not necessarily refer to machines. A team of workers who work well together can be refered to as a well-oiled machine.
Whale of a time – If you have a whale of a time, you really have a good time.
