I wanted to teach you guys a cool English phrase! It's pretty

common but I rarely hear English learners say it.
It's "like watching paint dry". Basically, it's a humorous way of saying something is really boring.
"What do you think of American football?"
"It's almost as good as watching paint dry." (he thinks American football is boring)

Удачи! 頑張って!In bocca al lupo!

    Is it common in American or British variant? Or we can use it anywhere?

    @Ayshe Americans say it too! But they might feel differently about American football 😅

    As far as I know English people don't use idioms often. It's just good to know, but don't use idioms in every sentence. Am I right?
