Sorry about the sporadic postings! Things keep coming up, delaying my chance to post something.
Rainy season is finally upon us. It seems to be later this year than usual. In the name of tsuyu (please correct me if that Japanese is wrong), I’ve decided to post a few ‘rain’ themed idioms…
Right as rain.
Perfectly fine, alright.
I’m not feeling the best after last night’s party, but after drinking a lot of water, eating a few bananas and going for a bit of a walk, I’ll be right as rain.
That really is a pretty good ‘hangover cure’. It does require a lot of effort though.
Rain on someone’s parade.
To spoil something for someone.
I hate to rain on your parade, but trying to ‘cure’ a hangover is impossible.
When it rains, it pours.
When something bad happens, it’s really bad.
I broke my leg skiing last season. Then, because my leg was in a cast, I tripped going up the stairs. I smashed my face into the concrete, horribly disfiguring it. My girlfriend could no longer stand to look at me, so she left. I got so depressed I stopped going to work and was fired. When it rains it pours.
