    Question Idioms from numbers

    I am doing an assignment on "English Idioms from Numbers" and I confront with so many difficulties, especially the origin of them? Why English people say that?
    Can you help me to find out the origin of idioms like "feel like a million dollars", "put all your eggs in one basket" and "that makes two of us"
    Thanks you very much!

    Re: Idioms from numbers

    Hi - you can find a lot of explanations on - Online Dictionary, Encyclopedia and much more. Otherwise you may try a search engine (eg. google) and put in "feel like a million dollars" + origin (or + 'meaning',).
