Need some idiom help!

I am teaching an ESL class (that I love), and every day we start with a brief discussion of an American idiom. We've covered a lot of them: dodge a bullet, get something straight, learn the hard way, and many more.

I'm wondering if you all might help me think of some of the more common ones that you use or hear.

    How about "3 sheets in a breeze"? ;-)

  3. Thanks for your ideas! :) I got some great ones from my mom, Melissa, and from the other instructors I work with also. Seems like I could teach 5 or 10 idioms a day and still not get to all of them.
