:
a predicament. Here’s a fine how-de-do!
:
a predicament. What a mess! This is a fine how-do-you-do!
:
a real mess; an unsatisfactory situation. The dog has eaten the steak we were going to have for dinner. This is a fine kettle of fish! This is a fine kettle of fish. It’s below freezing outside, and the furnace won’t work.
:
someone or something that draws a lot of attention for a very brief time. (Refers to a small grease fire in a frying pan. Informal.) I’m afraid that my success as a painter was just a f lash in the pan. Tom had hoped to be a singer, but his career was only a f lash in the pan.
:
a small, unpleasant matter that spoils something; a drawback. We enjoyed the play, but the f ly in the ointment was not being able to find our car afterward. It sounds like a good idea, but there must be a f ly in the ointment somewhere.
:
A person who acts unwisely with money soon loses it. (Often said about a person who has just lost a sum of money because of poor judgment.) When Bill lost a $400 bet on a horse race, Mary said, “A fool and his money are soon parted.” When John bought a cheap used car that fell apart the next day, he said, “Oh, well, a fool and his money are soon parted.”
:
recognition for having tried to do something even if it was not successful. The plan didn’t work, but I’ll give you an A for effort for trying so hard. Bobby played his violin in the concert and got an A for effort. It sounded terrible.
:
someone or something that is important and powerful and must not be ignored. Walter is a force to be reckoned with. Be prepared to deal with him. The growing discontent with the political system is a powerful force to be reckoned with.
:
a conclusion already reached; an inevitable result. That the company was moving to California was a foregone conclusion. That the mayor will win reelection is a foregone conclusion.
:
A true friend is a person who will help you when you really need someone. (Compare this with fair-weather friend.) When Bill helped me with geometry, I really learned the meaning of “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” “A friend in need is a friend indeed” sounds silly until you need someone very badly.
