    Question Understaning English

    I am reading a book. I do not understand what these exactly means.

    1. She's just standing around looking like she swalloed a live fly.

    2. I saw his eyes flicker and then he smiled a sideways twitch as if he was sharing a secret joke with her.

    Please translate these into simpler English. Thank you.
