    Smile Re: some difficult sentences

    I'll try:

    1. pitch a fit would be somewhat the same as "haveing a spat of temper" or being very angry, "...if you did that".

    2. If I go shopping, I have a general idea of what prices I can afford. I amy not want the cheapest but I don't have enough money to buy the best. If I'm buying a care, my price range may be $20,000 to $30,000. Thus, a $50,000 car is "out of my price range".

    3. "the other wy around" would mean it is the reverse, or opposite.

    4. There is a "fairy tale" of the girl that kissed a frog and he became a prince. So, as a young lady, you may have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.

    5. not sure what that sentence is?????

    6. Imagine a rope with a lot of knots in it. Work out the knots (or kinks) and it will be straight. Thus, if you "work out the kinks" you will be able to understand.
