English has many colloquial expressions to do with the body — from head to toe! Here are some of the commonest ones.
To keep your head is to remain calm, but to lose it is to panic and do something foolish. If something is above or over your head, it is too difficult for you to understand.
If you have something on the brain, you can't forget it, and if you pick someone's brains, you talk a problem over with them to see if they have any good ideas.
To pay through the nose is to pay a very high price for something, but if you turn up your nose at something you despise it. If you're all ears, you listen very attentively, and if you keep your ear to the ground you listen and watch out for signs of future events. To see eye to eye with someone is to agree with them.
To keep stiff upper lip is the traditionally British quality of not showing any emotion in times of trouble. To have your tongue in your cheek is to say one thing and mean something else. To have a sweet tooth is to have a taste for sweet food, and to do something by the skin of your teeth is to just manage to do it.
To stick your neck out is to do something risky or dangerous, and to keep someone at arm's length is to avoid getting too friendly with them. If you have a finger in every pie, you are involved in a lot of different projects. To be under someone's thumb is to be under their influence.
To be thick-skinned is to be insensitive to criticism, but to be thin-skinned is to be oversensitive. If your blood boils, you are furious about something, and if it freezes in your veins, you are terrified.
If you pull someone's leg, you tease them. To fall on your feet is to be very fortunate. To find your feet is to become used to a new situation, but to get cold feet is to become frightened or nervous about something.
