Interested in Language
I have recently been interested about Idoms and Expressions. I could find the meaning of some Idioms from this website but there are some that I have not found their meaning yet. Please help me with their meaning. These are as follows:
1- In the heat of the moment
2- Loose your shirt
3- Cloud of suspicious
4- I messed up
5- Eagles eyes
6- Red bag to a ball
7- Catch someone red-handed
8- Jump the broom
One more thing, I still could not understand the differences between Idom and Expression.
Thanks for your help!
If so, then have a look at the explanation here:
See "jump the broom" here: http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...jump+the+broom

For #5, in my experience it is invariably "eagle eyes", not "eagles".
Common variations are:
"Astute buyers keep an eagle eye on the latest developments in infrastructure."
"To be sure, you need eagle eyes to locate the small signs directing you to the lot."
"However, the eagle-eyed amongst you may spot the giveaway that this is a fake."
These examples are found, along with others, here: http://fraze.it/n_search.jsp?q=eagle+eye
Thanks for your help about this expression.
How can I understand which one the expressions or idioms are used in British or American?
Dictionary websites can tell you that.
