Aussie phrase of the week

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!
