    Default Press your nose up against the glass

    What's the bold text mean? Is it an idiom?

    Okay, if Gen knows you and you wanna press your nose up against the glass and take a few notes. I don't really care. But you'll have a hard sell with the parents.

    Default Re: Press your nose up against the glass

    Yes, it is an expression that means to take a closer look.

    If you were passing by a store and saw something wonderful in the display window, you might lean into the window to get a better view. Your nose might be pressed against the glass.
