    Not raining heavily-It is drizzling-appropriate.
    skinny-very thin.
    Thin -- looks better.

    Re: chubby face

    Thanks

    Is it wrong to say I was passing by and I hit my leg on the coat/table.?

    Is it on the cheeks or in the cheeks.
    on the face or in the face.
    on the hair/in the hair.

    Is it correct to ask 'has she lost weight' ?

    could you please tell me why is it wrong to use if I ask instead of to ask in the above sentence?
    why is all always replaced by everyone or everybody in the sentences.

    thanks in advance

    If I ask you .... is not a question.It is conditional phrase.
    Slaps on the cheeks;pain in the cheek. Depends on how you use.

    Re: chubby face

    Thank you soup

    which preposition is used if i want

    I want to keep the flowers on/in my hair.

    Regarding the cheeks and face,is it depending on the context that we use prepositions?.i have heard that we use either in or on with cheeks and face.ie we say on the cheeks,but never in the cheeks or vice versa.similar is the case with face.I thought it in that manner.

    which one to use?

    There is dirt on your cheeks or in your cheeks.

    thanks
