    Re: meaning

    get through with some body = finish dealing with them

    impeccable timing (is it a expression?) = perfect timing- they have arrived, etc, at exactly the right moment

    ditch the dodo = a dodo is an extinct bird, so ditching the dodo is getting rid of something that is useless


    que pasa = what's happening (Spanish)

    lousy=detestable=abhorrent=loathsome=abominable( i want to know are these synonyms? and all of them are common? ) There synonyms, but lousy is the most common

    ......
    A.Doctor there is some thing in my eye every thing looks funny and it hurts(what dose every thing looks funny mean?) funny= strange, unusual



    No bother
