  1. "He looks like a tall glass of water" (is handsome) or more recently the slang of being "thirsty" (meaning lustful) I find both of these so absurd, I dont think being thirsty is anything like lust or attraction. Thirst is innocent, you cant really have any depraved version of it and it applies to all ages; Lust isnt. I always google them to find the meaning - urban dictionary is usually helpful I like "low-key_" even though I wouldnt use it myself, but like I am low-key happy (I am slightly happy or calmly happy). This makes sense because low-key has previously been used to describe a smaller or quieter event. I like idioms where the image it creates makes sense. She is the "apple of my eye" (favourite/cherished) makes a weird image, I dislike it. Anytime someone uses it, an image of an apple in someones eye comes to mind which is funny but the illogicality irritates me. I hate the idiom "fruit of my loins" (children) because it sounds really gross, I dont like the sound of the word 'loins', and people should keep fruit where it belongs - again the imagery thing. Do any bother you even if you know the meaning?

    Idioms Explained

    Who in here struggles understanding, idioms/slang terms? I know I do, it's always been something I've struggled with. I think it can be an autistic trait, just like how taking things literally can be. I thought it'd be a great idea to start a thread where we can all write down our experiences with idioms, idioms we used to not know/understand the meaning of, but then learned, how we learned them, their definitions, etc.
