BHS Announcements for January 16, 2020
Bulletin for 01-16-20
An idiom is a combination of words that has a figurative meaning, due to its common usage, idioms are not to be taken literally. Today’s idiom: once bitten, twice shy - The origin of this idiom comes from a translation of an Aesop’s fable revolving around a wolf who threatens to eat a dog who convinces him that he is very skinny and needs to eat in order to get fat enough to be a good meal. When the wolf returns the dog is out of reach. The wolf is upset with the dog and the dog says that he will never lay that close to the gate again. Meaning: a bad experience causes us to exercise caution, said when you are frightened to do something again because you had an unfriendly experience of doing it the first time.
