Idiom of the week

This is inspired by 'Souls Word of the Day, however I wanted to keep the idiom on the site and I don't know 365 of them, so it's idiom of the week, and not day.

Aren't these proverbs/sayings/expressions? - No. Idioms are phrases which carry cultural meaning, and whose meaning you cannot find through the words' literal meaning. This means that "a stone's throw away" is an expression (since you can understand it from the words), while "raining cats and dogs" is an idiom (since it means raining heavily, and has nothing to do with actual cats and dogs). Since idioms are speshul, I love them! HAVE SOME IDIOMS.
