Hi, all. :)
Could anyone help explain the meaning of the bold-phrase below?
“So, Dylan,” Grandpa’s voice booms, “you like sheep?”
I nearly choke on my pot roast. I’ve heard all the jokes about sheep herders and ewes. I toss him a horrified look. “No. I like girls.”
Obviously he’s heard the jokes, too, because he lets loose a big laugh.“That’s a huge weight off my mind.”
A million thanks for your kindness :)
In this context, it can also mean, "That's a big relief to me."
Yes, I'm agree. :) Thanks for the suggestion :D
If someone has a "huge weight on their mind", it means that they are very worried about something.So, in the end, "weight on" means very worried and "weight off" means big relief right?In this context, it can also mean, "That's a big relief to me."
