Slang of the Day?
XYZ✍?Meaning:"code" said to alert someone that their zipper, or fly, is open❕For example:?"Hey, Bob. XYZ, dude."?I noticed that Tony had forgotten to do up his fly, so I said "XYZ, Tony" and winked as I looked down at his fly. Tony looked a bit confused, and then said he wasn't gay. Apparently he didn't know what "XYZ" means. ?Note: This is a type of "code word" used to avoid the socially awkward situation of having to tell someone directly that their zipper, or fly, is open.©Origin: derived from "(e)Xamine Your Zipper"?Variety: This slang term is typically used in American English but may be used in other varieties of English too.━━━━━━━━━━━━━#Slang_of_the_Day ? @Englishofthedayy

Idiom of the Day?(it's) raining cats and dogs✍?Meaning:You can say "it's raining cats and dogs" if it's raining very hard.❕For example:?We can't go now because it's raining cats and dogs. ?Why do people always use "it's raining cats and dogs" as an example of an idiom?

The phrase's source before this time remains a mystery, despite the many theories that have been put forward to explain its origin.━━━━━━━━━━━━━#Idiom_of_the_Day ? @Englishofthedayy

Idiom of the Day?
keep it under your hat✍?Meaning: If someone tells you a secret and you keep it under your hat, you don't tell anyone.❕For example:?I'll only tell you if you promise to keep it under your hat.?Aunt Biddy said she couldn't possibly tell me the family secrets because she'd pledged on her mother's grave to keep them under her hat. ?Origin: There are at least two theories about this idiom's origin. One says it's related to the fact that archers in medieval Europe used to keep spare strings for their bows under their hats, with the implication being that other things could also be kept under one's hat without anyone knowing about it. The other says it's related to the fact that one's head is under one's hat, and that to keep something under one's hat simply means to keep it in one's head, as opposed to spreading it around by telling everyone.━━━━━━━━━━━━━#Idiom_of_the_Day ? @Englishofthedayy
