    Re: I shook in my shoes

    Yes, it's probably an idiom. What is your best guess as to its meaning? (The context will probably help.)

    Re: I shook in my shoes

    When a person is excited or afraid then his legs trembles but cannot be made out by others watching him. Thus this expression means to be afraid inside but it is not apparent to others. Whenever one is afraid or anxious, it makes the blood pressure go up and one feels that one is trembling.
