midnight, just i was clicking on the tread. i actually thought "to the victor go the spoils" not that is just scary. how about "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" i don't think it really qualifies as an idiom , but couldn't resist.

In all the truth. I totally know what you mean. I live with an American, and she is even english major so I have a lot of help and still. I make the darndest mistakes even after 21 years. My gosh. I've been in USA for 21 years, unbelevable.

yes, babe, to "cut to the chase", I DO believe that your quote was "spot on", while mine "fell flat", &, I "missed my mark". Guess what I am saying is that I "was close, but, no cigar!" HAHAHA!

And..... If you don't like flies, you could always "have your cake and eat it too!"
