#IOTW: Age related Idioms

Good evening, fellas. It’s Indonesian youth pledge day, a day which is believed to be the day of youth rising in 1928.How did you celebrate Youth Pledge Day today?

Well, today I met with a friend who is dating a much younger guy. That’s really robbing the cradle. To rob the cradle is an idiom I used to because my friend has a romantic relationship with someone who is much younger than her.  #IOTW

There are still some more idioms related to age. Have you got one? Mention and I’ll RT. #IOTW

“Get on in years”. Someone who is getting on in years is growing old. E.g., My grandfather is getting on in years. She can’t walk fast anymore. #IOTW

“knee-high to a grasshopper”. This term refers to a very young and therefore a small child. E.g., I can’t believe how fast my nephew grows. Last I time I saw him, he was knee-high to a grasshopper. #IOTW

“Silver surfer”. A silver surfer is an elderly person who uses the internet. E.g., My grandfather wants me to teach him how to use the internet. He’s ready to join the silver surfers. #IOTW

“no spring chicken”. To say someone is over the hill, they have reached an age when they can no longer perform as well as before. E.g., “How old is our next lecturer? Hmmm, I don’t know but from what I heard he’s over the hill”. #IOTW

Use it to get used to it!
