    Smile idioms

    I wanted to know if you can give me three sets of idioms that have the same meaning. For example: a close thing=a close call=a close shave!All these idioms mean "a narrow escape from something unpleasant".I can't find others examples.Thank you!

    How about

    Six feet under.
    Pushing up the daisies.
    Long gone.
