It would be rude, I think, not to comment on the lack of a blog last week. I was, you see, a bit pressed for time, a bit too busy. So, I’ll take this opportunity to talk (or type) about time. (What is it? Does it even exist? Only joking! Don’t worry. I won’t be getting philosophical this, or any other week.) What I’d like to focus on is idioms, specifically those to do with time. There are some songs that could help us:
We all know they’ve been around for a long time so they should know.
They may even feel like this guy, appearing for the second time on this blog, the timeless Satchmo, Louis Armstrong:
Can you think of any other “time” expressions? If so, leave a comment and let us know. We’d appreciate you giving us your time.
Here are a few to get started on. Maybe you could leave a comment explaining them and giving a sample sentence:
1. in the nick of time
2. from time to time
3. There’s no time like the present.
4. It’s (only) a matter of time.
5. in no time (at all)
Don’t worry if you only know one or two – post a comment anyway.
Til next time, seeya.
