    He doesn't have good taste, but he certainly is made of money.

    business. He's made of money.
    SYNONYMS: loaded; rolling in dough; to have money to burn

    Hi guys,

    The idiom that makes me laugh every time I hear someone say that is:

    Don't be such a stick in the mud - don't be so reluctant to do things that are out of the box. A person who is simply boring,unspontaneous

    Also, when you sweep sb off their feet, you make them fall in love with you.
