True or false Someone who is as cool as a cucumber doesn't get upset or worried. If you'd do something at the drop of a hat, you would need to think things over carefully before deciding. If something takes donkey's years, it won't take very long. If something has gone down the pan, it has failed. If you take to something like a duck takes to water, you have a natural talent for it. If you take the bull by the horns, you deal with a problem directly. True False True
True or false? If you talk out of your hat, you talk nonsense. If someone tells you to keep your hair on, they want you to show more emotion. If you go Dutch when paying a bill, one person pays for everything. If you work like a dog, you work very hard indeed. True False True
