It's good to have good neighbors. What are yours? Are they...
AS QUIET AS A MOUSE
This beautiful simile refers to being very quiet; in Polish we also have a similar expression and it is 'siedzieć jak mysz pod miotłą', which means 'być bardzo cicho'.
A few examples from the Internet:
- The dressing-room is as quiet as a mouse because no-one wants to speak a word...
- My sis is as quiet as a mouse. Because you can hardly tell when she's in the house...
- She's better than other grannies because she is as quiet as a mouse.
- Their new electric garage door opener is as quiet as a mouse.
- Molly is as quiet as a mouse, gentle on the leash, great with other dogs and people, and very well behaved in the house.
My question to you:
Do you have neighbors? Are they as quiet as a mouse?
