Summary: Funny Idioms

Unfortunately Hilary is not feeling well (or to use idioms to describe this, we might say, Hilary is ‘Under the Weather’!)

So a bonus idiom for you: Sailors used to use the term “under the weather”. They ordered sailors and passengers who got ill or seasick to go below deck, which sailors believed to be the best place for people to recover and take shelter from bad weather. Over time, this became a synonym for being ill.

I hope you can forgive Hilary’s voice (we edited out all the coughing and sneezing!). To end on a more positive note, we covered “funny” idioms so cheer everyone up.
