Now the VOA Special English Words and their Stories.

Cold weather has a great effect on how our minds and bodies work. Maybe that is the why many expression that use the word cold. For centuries, the body’s blood has been linked closely with emotions. People who show no human emotions and feelings, for example, are said to be cold blood. Cold blood people act in cool way. They may do brutal things to others and not by accident. For example, a news paper says the police are searching for a clod blood killer. The killer murder someone not in himself defense or not because he was reacting to anger or fear. He seems to kill for no reason and with no emotion. As he taking someone’s life meaning nothing.

 

Cold can affect other part of body, the feet for example. Having a shock can warm your feet if your feet are really cold. But there is an expression to get your clod feet. There is nothing to do with cold or your feet. The expression means being afraid to do something you have decided to do. For example, you are be a president of organization. But then you have learned that all the other officers have resigned. All the works of organization would be your responsibilities. You are likely to get cold feet when you understand the situation.

 

Cold can also affect your shoulder. You give someone cold shoulder when you refuse to speak to them. You treat them in a distant cold way. The expression probably come from physical act of turning your back instead of speaking to them fact to face. You may give a cold shoulder to your friend who may not keep his promise to you or to someone who has lied about you to others. A cold fish is not a fish. It is a person. But it is a person who are unfriendly or unemotional, shows no love or warm. A cold fish does not offer himself much to anyone. Someone who is cold fish could be cold heart.

 

Now a cold heart is a person who has no thenpose. Several popular songs in recent years were about cold heart man or cold heart woman who without feelings broke hearts of their lovers. Out of cold is a expression often heard. It means getting something that everybody else get. A person may say that everybody but him get pay rise. He was left out in the cold. That is not a pleasant place to be.
