    I'm Rizke from Indonesia. Today I'll prepare my thesis about "A students ability in understanding idiomatic expressions". But I have some obstacles in understanding idioms, so I have several questions about idioms and I hope you can answer my questions as soon as possible.

    1. I say without moving muscle
    2. I'll just have a teeny peek
    3. We won't be cast out on the streets
    4. I hiss in horror
    5. I beam back at him
    6. Experimentally I proud my bump
    7. How can I be so uncool?
    8. My skin starts to prickle
    9. Your outfit is shoddy, Mother?
    10. I try to sound matter-of-fact
    11. I catch my breath
    12. I give an offhand shrug
    13. How lovely,darling?
    14. And then they knife you
    15. He gives an incredulous snort
