Idioms, Phrases and All That
Well, that's one down. Now how about the following - pulling someone's legs, being in a pickle, the long and short of it, it's raining cats and dogs, to have ants in your pants, tongue-tied, butterflies in the stomach etc.? Sigh...

But since he is seemingly confronted with those unintendedly confusing arrangement of spoken words in his social situations, I guess he and I have some work to do. It's not going to be easy. Let me just say, at least we'll "have a blast" figuring some of them out.
