Many of you have made comments over the years about some of my "odd" sayings, well the cat's out of the bag that some may be quirky and strange, so I figured I would clear the air and see if you identify with any of them or understand them for yourself!
"He/She knows where your goat is tied up." or "He/She has got your goat."
- When someone has your goat it's similar to them pushing your buttons. They know that one little thing that makes you tick and they know how to get a reaction out of you.
"He's sweet on you"
- This is an easy one folks. So instead of saying crushing or "like," "sweet on" means that you have romantic feelings for someone.
"I have a mouse in my pocket."
- This one is the saying I get the most flack for. For some reason, people don't seem to get it! So here goes my explanation: If you said to your friend, "It's something 'we' can do together", and then your friend said "We', do you have a mouse in your pocket?" IT means he/she is not interested and you would have to have a mouse in your pocket, then you and the mouse would be "we."
"Pull the wool over my eyes"
- This is a phrase used to deceive someone from knowing what you're really doing: In that case you are "pulling the wool" over their eyes.
- This is a humorous axiom stating that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. I also use it in ironic situations. For example- I pull into a parking lot and hit a parked car. The owner of the car coincidentally happens to be coming out of the store at that exact moment.
