a fit? throw a fit? what's the meaning?
well, this is my first time doing this so i'm not sure what's the right thing to do, so please forgive me for many mistakes i made or i will made.
anyway, i read a novel and there's something i really confuse on. it's here.
“Just give me the chance to decide whether or not I’m going to throw a fit over taking you to the hospital.”
He made a face of mock horror. “Please, not a fit!”
“If you don’t let me see your hand, a fit is guaranteed.”
i don't understand the word ' a fit ' here, nor ' throw a fit over '.
so, can anyone help me, please?
Re: a fit? throw a fit? what's the meaning?
"throwing a fit" is an expression that means to have a temper tantrum or emotional outburst.
She threw a fit over the cost of the meal.
Someone can also "throw a smile" and throw a glance." These are all idoms you will hear and see quite often in informal speech.
She threw a smile my way and I knew she wanted to meet me.
I will just throw a glance into that room to see if he is there.
A glove "fits" a hand. That means it covers the hand exactly and is the correct size.
