You idiom!

I'm a huge fan of idioms.

Little birds talk to me. I handle delicate matters with kid gloves. I take stabs at new things. I'll beat the tar out of anyone who hurts my kids.

I hope you get the drift, because I'm tuckered out.

A traditional way of saying something. Often an idiom, such as “under the weather,” does not seem to make sense if taken literally. Someone unfamiliar with English idioms would probably not understand that to be “under the weather” is to be sick.
