    Default Re: dirt flat

    Hi Mili,

    flat on his face
    Definition: to be completely unsuccessful at a task. Used when someone fails completely at what he or she is trying to do
    Examples: I fell flat on my face when I tried to introduce myself to Mary.

    Remember the wise Faemino:

    "Se comió la mierda..."
