No. 11: Eggshells

no. 11 eggshells

Walking on eggshells.  We’ve all done it, whether we know it or not.  You know that time you ticked your mom off, and then you tried to lay low so she didn’t get more mad at you?  That’s walking on eggshells.

It’s an idiom.

An idiom is a phrase that can’t be translated because the meaning of the phrase is figurative, not literal.

You don’t actually walk on eggshells around people. What are you going to do, keep them in your pocket for every uncomfortable situation you may encounter?

No. Probably not.

What are some situations that had you walking on eggshells?
