    Why not? An idiom is a peculiar or unconventional expression that may or may not be taken literally.

    Welcome to the forum, acornman. :hi.

    Please try to give your threads titles that give us some idea of what they are about. 'So what' idiom; why?' would have been good for this.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
