My dear friends, I couldn't decide what task to propose you. I wanted to post something both useful and interesting. But yesterday I saw a car accident on the highway. Fortunately, there happened nothing serious and it helped me come up with this idea.
Well, the idea is following. I will tell you some idioms and phrasal verbs with the verb TO RUN and will ask you to write your stories using at least 5 of them. If some of the expressions are not clear enough, just ask me for more explanations and examples, OK? You may know some of them, but some of them may be new for you. If you drive, it will be easy for you to write a story using these expressions.
So, here is my list.
to run oneself into the ground - to make oneself extremely exhausted
to run in - to run (mostly an engine) gently when it is new
to run like the clappers - to move extremely fast
to run smbd/smth down - to hit a person or an animal and to knock it on the ground
to run over - to knock smbd/smthing down and to drive over
to run low/short of - to become depleted
to run out of - to use up
to run into smth - to face unexpected problems or to hit something with a vehicle
to run one's mind over smth - to recall some past events
to run like a hairy goat - to act in such a way that others think you are worse than you are
to run on - to talk incessantly or to something without stopping
to run off - to write a story, a verse or something else in no time.
Well, I am ready to run off my story and what about you? Let's see!
