    Re: difficult sentences

    Hi adel,

    1)And discover that the bathroom is a swampy, hairy mess,
    here i've not understand hairy mess

    There is a lot of hair in the bathroom. I have two daughters with long hair. I have told them that if I find a hairy mess in the tub, they will be the ones who clean it out.


    2)The only way I could do it without freaking out was knowing they were there.
    here i've not understand freaking out

    "Freaking out" is a pretty common slang term meaning to become very upset. I found a dead mouse in my living room. I couldn't touch it without freaking out, so I put a box over it and waited for my husband to come home.

    3)Being hooked on these stupid things even though I hate the way they taste and smell.
    here i've not understood being hooked

    Addicted to.

    4) Well, I'm willing to give it up for you, cold turkey, if you give up smoking.
    here i've not understood why they use present continuous with will also what is the meaning of i'm willing to give it up for you,
    cold turkey

    Present continuous is often used for future actions. Cold turkey is when you stop using/doing something completely, from the start. You don't gradually decrease, but stop from the start.
