I’m Only Human Nature?

Did you know that there are at least 25,000 idiomatic expressions in the English language?

Truth is I have a problem using them correctly.  More often than not I get them so mixed-up I often sound as if I was doing it intentionally coming out like a stand-up comic every single time.  My sister has gotten tired correcting me and has been reduced to just rolling her eyes in exasperation.

That said, we shouldn’t completely blame the people who actually mix them up [pointing at self] and just let their mistakes slide.  Although some mistakes are downright funny it would feel like sin to pass them up. 😀

Here are some examples I got from Boy Banat.  Just click if you want more from him.

“Get the most of both worlds.”
“Well well well. Look do we have here!”
“One of these days is not like the other.”
“Can you repeat it once again?”
“Mukhang haggard-looking.”
“Do you have more brighter ideas?”
“Let’s give them a big hand of applause.”
“You want to have your cake and bake it too.”
“The more the manyer.”
“So… what’s a beautiful girl like you?….
“It’s a no-win-win situation.”
“Hello, my boss is out of town. Would you like to wait”
“What happened after the erection of Mayon Volcano?”
“That’s what I’m talking about it.”
“What are friends are for?”
“Burn the bridge when you get there.”
“What is the world is coming to?”
“You’re barking at the wrong dog.”
“Anulled and void.”
“Mute and academic.”
“Base-to-base casis.”
“My answers have been prayered.”
“The feeling is actual.”
“For all intense and purposes.”
“Are you sure ka na ba?”
“Can’t you just cut me some slacks?”
“Nothing in this world is perfect except the word “change”
“It’s a blessing in the sky.”
“Right there and right then.”
“You!!! You’re not a boy anymore! You’re a man anymore!”
“Out of fit ako these days eh…”
“Please me alone!”
‘It’s as brand as new.”
“So far, so good, so far.”
“Time is of the elements.”
“Forget it about it.”
“Give him the benefit of the daw.”
“First and for all.”
“Come, lets join us!”

“Now and there.”
“I’m only human nature.”
