AS QUICK AS A FLASH
What this simile means is just that we are very quick, very fast; in Polish we also have a similar expression and it is 'szybki jak błyskawica'.
A few examples from the Internet:
- The atmosphere is vibrant, the waitresses are hugely welcoming, extremely polite and friendly and the service is as quick as a flash.
- Even if he can only see with one eye, he is as quick as a flash and built like...
- ...who's a brilliant stand up comedian, who is as quick as a flash and he's terribly funny and takes no...
- She was as quick as a flash and said she had some more gold to show me.
- Brendon McCullum was as quick as a flash and removed the bails before Parnell got back into his crease.
My question to you:
How would you describe yourself? Are you usually as quick as a flash?
