    Re: meaning of some terms

    1) FEEL SOMETHING IN ONE`S BONE.
    You have a genuine sense of certainty about something
    2) I`M ON THE GO.
    busy, doing things
    3) I HAVE A FROG IN MY THROAT.
    when you have to cough to clear your throat, but not through a cold or anything, like when you have to talk in public
    4) DON`T KEEP ME IN DARK ANY LONGER.
    tell me what is going on- if you keep someone in the dark, you don't inform them about something
    5) MAN PROPOSES,GOD DISPOSES.
    People can plan things, but God/fate has the final answer and can destroy all of our plans
    6) ARE YOU EASY TO READ?
    Can people tell what you're thinking/feeling
    7) HIT THE MESSAGE.
    What's the context for this one?
