Idiom of the Day

“Knock your socks off”

This idiom is somewhat

older from the 80’s but still in use. If you “knock someone’s socks off,” you really impressed them. More than that, they were not expecting your actions either, making them doubly impressed. Maybe you arrive home from work and your spouse prepared a special meal in advance, complete with dessert, flowers, and candles - and it’s not during a special day. Or a mechanic fixes your car extremely well and it didn’t cost a lot of money. In these cases, the gestures would have “knocked your socks off.”
