    Question Want to know the meanings of some idioms

    there are few idioms that I am not conversant with.
    So It's my humble request to help me see the daylight.

    here is the list

    • to save one's bacon
    • to tell out of school
    • to be in one's birthday suit
    • in for a penny, in for a pound


    thank you...

    Thank you.
    In addition to searching the net, you can click on "References" at the top of the screen and choose "Idioms".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
