More Idioms


Jientje at Heaven is in Belgium, hosts A Thousand Words In Idioms.

A little bird told me
If someone doesn't want to say where they got some information from, they can say that a little bird told them.
I used this idiom a lot when my kids were growing up.
Put a sock in it.
If someone tells you to put a sock in it, they are telling you to shut up.
