Don't Count Your Chickens...


This week's quiz comes from Oxford Dictionaries. They've given us the first half of 10 "common" English phrases. Okay, okay, most of them are common. A couple of them I'd never heard before.

Complete the Phrase


I got a respectable 80%. Two of those phrases I'd never heard before. Or it might have been three, and I just made one really lucky guess.

  1. I did poorly...the devil phrases did me in. I had never heard some of those.

  2. I got an 80% too. The last two I had never heard of. "Accidents will happen" and "needs" must were completely new.

    1. There's a fine line--it has to be kind of fun but a little challenging.

    1. Yeah, a few of those you only hear the first half most of the time.
