Wolf in ship’s clothing.

Wolf in ship’s clothing.

Now the VOA Special English Program- Words and their Stories.

Last week I explain some English expressions about clothes. Everything I told you is true. I did not talk through my heads(hats) or say something without knowing the facts.

Everyone knows there are many English expressions about clothes. There is no need to keep it a secret or keep it under your head. In fact ,if I keep talking soon enough you started to think I am a old hunts about this. A real exports, do not be full though (fooled),though,my friends sometimes call me a wolf be (in )ship clothing. This is someone who acts like a good person. But it is really a bad person.

I am not really a bad person. But I do love clothes. It is always fun to get dressed up. I look great in my best clothes. When I put the month(them on),I feel dunk(decked) down(out).. you might say when I wear my best clothes. I am dressed to the nice or dressed to the cheese(teeth). In fact ,my husband says I look dressed just to the Q(kill). of course ,I were (would never)not kill anyone.

But it is something special about putting on clothes. There are pleasing to the eye. My best clothes are not modern or fashionable. Maybe some day they will come into fashion. But I really do not care. They certainly look better on me when(than) my birthday suit. Did you know that everyone have a birthday suit. You wear it when you are wearing no clothes at all. Babies are born wearing their birthday suit. I am very careful with my clothes. I hand of(handle) them with kid groves.I try not to get them dirty or tone(torn). Those of my clothes fit like a grove. They fit perfectly. But when I eat too much, I feel that my clothes might closed at the skins.. my clothes too restrictive  l and tight.

Some of the clothes, I like best are hand be them. My Older sister gave them to me when she no longer wanted them, hand me down are a great. Because clothes often cost too much money. I live on the suit straight(shoestring). I have a very small budget, and a little money to spend on clothes. However, my sister has a lot of money to spend on clothes. Maybe someday the shoes will be the other foots. They opposite will be true. I would have a lot of money to buy clothes. And my sister will get hand me down from me. I am rich(admit) I dream of being rich. I dream that someday I will be able to live a rich person. I would know what it is like to work(walk) in another person shoes. Some of my friends got rich by writing (riding) someone else cock tails. They are successful today as a result of someone else being successful. But I believe you should never crisis others for something you would do yourself. What it is said someone else, can also be said about you. Remember  if the shoes fits ,wear it.
