PARTS OF THE BODY - IDIOMS: FACE

Hello! Następny 'cielesny' idiom na dzisiaj :) Co powiecie na zajęcie się nieco twarzą? Mam tutaj taki fajny idiomek, który uważam jest niesamowicie popularny... głównie chyba wśród dzieci... szczególnie wtedy, kiedy coś nie idzie po ich myśli :)

Dzisiejszy idiom, to:

PULL A LONG FACE

So what happens when you pull a long face? Well, you just look worried or simply unhappy... In Polish we also have a nice idiom that perfectly matches the English one... We say zrobić kwaśną minę :)


A few examples from the Net:
  • They pulled a long face when they were not selected in the national football team. 
  • Tom pulled a long face when he heard the story.
  • He pulled a long face when I reprimanded him.
  • He pulled a long face, and Mother didn't like it.
  • Her parents served some warm and delicious fried noodles with green leafy vegetables on top. Jola, however, pulled a long face.   
  • Mark pulls a long face throughout the entire performance..
My question to you:
When was the last time you pulled a long face? What happened? Did you use to pull long faces when you were a kid? When?  


Looking forward to you posts! :)
