Ok, so so far we have had ‘full as a Pommie complaint box’ and ‘crack the shits’ – now I will endeavour to bring you more antipodean turns of phrase (or is it turn of phrases? Neither, I suspect!)
Let me set the scene …. I go into work, it is a Tuesday afternoon, Tuesdays are just this side of hellish at work.
Me – So how has it been today, Kylie?
Kylie – Like a lizard drinking.
Me (puzzled expression on face) – Huh? (because I am just that eloquent sometimes!)
Kylie – Flat out, like a lizard drinking.
FLAT OUT LIKE A LIZARD DRINKING = incredibly busy
LOL, I love it! They do love a metaphor over here! More gems like this to come in future weeks!
