The Amazing World of Idioms

by Cathy

I have always had a weakness for idioms. I find the fact that the meaning of a whole idiom is/be different from the meaning of each word it is composed of, very attractive and funny. I am very keen on writing too, so, some time ago, it came to my mind that I could try and use idioms in a short story just to see and for the fun of it! Not an easy task actually, but quite an interesting writing experience!

Now my friends, are you ready to enter the amazing world of English idioms?
