Hi , my name is Shira .
I was born in Belgium and also there we use the same idiom . My question to you (the forum) is if one of you now what the background of this idiom is?
Does someone have an idea?
It just fascinates me to know background of some idioms.
Is there a special site that some of you know about that tell's you about the backgrounds of idioms . Interesting , no?
