because people speak English
This morning I have visited this cam and there happened to be two penguins.
Outgoing: Look! She's back! Come and tell her, NOW!
Shy: Hey, it's like a piece of cake for you, but I don't think I can. Anyway, it doesn't have to be against the clock. Haste makes waste, and we have lots of time, you know!
Outgoing [sounds angrily]: No more excuses! It's high time you told her how you feel about her. Your one-sided love drives me up the wall. I have to see it every day, you know.
Shy [sighs]: Oh, I'm between a rock and a hard place. I know, you and other friends have said positive words about me to her. But what if this is a flash in the pan?
Outgoing: You have to do this sooner or later. I'm telling you; this love can't last until the cows come home. You have been having this crush on her for nearly 5 years (penguin year). Just wear your heart on your sleeve, that's all.
Shy: OK, you're right. But I need a dry run. Can you be her for a moment? I'll say my words and you tell me if it's OK or not, OK?
Outgoing: Sure [can't be more curious to hear the words].
Shy [breathes deeply, sincerely looks into Outgoing's eyes]: Dear Beauty, my heart to you is given. Oh, do give yours to me. We'll lock them up together. And throw away the key.
Outgoing: What can I say?! You must have spent hours searching those words on Google [That's exactly what Shy did :D]. It's perfect!
Shy: Really? You think everything will go well if I say those words to her? Please tell me you are not pulling my leg!
Outgoing: This will work without a doubt. I'm as honest as the day is long! Break a leg, mate!
Shy: OK. I can't thank you enough! Here I go.
A Piece of Cake: A task that can be accomplished very easily.
Against The Clock: Rushed and short on time.
Haste Makes Waste: Quickly doing things results in a poor ending.
It's High Time: If you say it's high time that something happened, you mean that it should already have been done.
Drive Someone Up The Wall: To irritate and/or annoy very much.
Between A Rock And A Hard Place: In difficulty, faced with a choice between two unsatisfactory options.
Flash In The Pan: Something that shows potential or looks promising in the beginning but fails to deliver anything in the end.
Until The Cows Come Home: For a very long time
Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve: To openly and freely express your emotions.
Dry Run: Rehearsal.
Pull Someone's Leg: Trick someone as a joke.
Without A Doubt: For certain.
Be As Honest As The Day Is Long: To be completely honest
Break A Leg: A superstitious way to say "good luck" without saying "good luck", but rather the opposite.
I Can't Thank You Enough: A polite expression of gratitude.
This is the site where I took above idioms from (and I also searched for better meanings from other sites).
Many thanks to my sister Mitran for encouraging me to take part in this challenge!
And I greatly thank teacher Tara for helping me correct some mistakes!
