A British friend of mine said he didn't want to get caught "telling porkies" to passport control.

I side with your friend, I don't want to get caught "telling lies outside of school."

Well, it has been "a blast" reading these, but it is time to "put on the old feedbag" now. I'll be back in "three shakes of a lamb's tail."

"I'm starving," too, but it's late so I'd better "hit the sack," so "nighty night."

I remember once I was in-processing a young Korean bride. I did really, realy well in that I knew how to say hello (I've forgotten now!), knew that most Koreans like orange flavored drinks (sent one of my airmen down to the machine I knew had orange pop). Did OK until someone said something about breaking a record! This gal's English wasn't bad at all (a heck of a lot better than my 6 or 7 words of Korean!), but there I was, trying to explain that, no, we weren't going to break any (then vinyl) records. I think learning idioms is the hardest thing when trying to learn a new language. When I would have said, "That'll happen when aitch-ee-double hocky sticks freezes over" (I don't want to get bleeked) a German girlfriend of mine would say something about when the statue on the bridge smiles (she was from Nurenburg).
