Hello my friends! As I promised, here it is the third part of the Idioms!!!! And I am preparing something on Phrasal Verbs also, many people are asking for that.

I hope you like it as much as you liked the other ones.

See you! Laughing

 

 1) DRESSED TO KILL – attractively attired; very well dressed

e.g: “I've never seen Jill dressed to kill like this before... Do you know where she is going?”, Frank asked Tom.

2) FACE THE MUSIC – to experience criticism or punishment for something you have done.

e.g: You know that if you screw up you’ll have to face the music, don’t you?

3) GET A KICK OUT OF – to enjoy something greatly

e.g: “Did you like the movie?”  “Oh, yeah. I got a kick out of it!”

4) GET THE PICTURE – to understand a situation

e.g: You don’t have to explain anymore, I get the picture.

5) HAVE ONE’S HANDS FULL – to be very busy

e.g: With four kids to raise, Sally surely has her hands full.

6) HAVE SOMEONE WRAPPED AROUND ONE’S FINGER – to have complete control over someone

e.g: Hate always has her way with Louis. She has him wrapped around her fingers.

7) HEAD OVER HEELS – to be totally in love

e.g: Mary has fallen head over heels for Jack.

8) KICK THE BUCKET – to die

e..g: “Did you hear old Mr. Owen kicked the bucket? He had a stroke or something.”

9) KILLJOY – someone who spoils other people’s fun or pleasure

e.g: “Don’t be such a killjoy”, Janet told her husband. “The kids are only having a little fun!”

10) LIVE IT UP – enjoy life

e.g: You’ve worked so hard for so long. Don’t you think it’s time to live it up a little?

 

Thanks for your attention!

Wait for the Phrasal Verbs!!!!! Laughing
