Exercise A

He’s a fair-weather friend — someone who you can trust only when things are going well.

She has her head in the clouds — when you are not thinking clearly.

He was sick yesterday, but today he is right as rain — to feel fine.

He was left his last job under a cloud — under bad circumstances.

Every cloud has a silver lining — bad things always have a good side.

It’s a storm in a teacup — when people become upset over unimportant things.

I’m feeling a bit under the weather — depressed because you are not well, ill.

I’m snowed under by work now — to have a lot of work.

It never rains but it pours (my favorite)— troubles always come closer together.

We’re having an Indian summer — abnormally hot weather.
