      1. "Let the cat out of the bag."
        1. Reveal a secret or a hidden fact.
        2. Let the cat go outside and play.
        3. Give a gift.
        4. Give someone a surprise.
        1.  

          Letting the cat out of the bag is to reveal a hidden secret. An example would be a company's new product launch. It is kept private so that the surprise won't be ruined. When the cat is out of the bag, it is meant that it has been revealed to the public.  

           

          Ex:

          "I know you wanted to wait for the official press release, but now that the cat is out of the bag, let's discuss how we solve the crisis."

           

          translation:

          "I know you wanted to wait for the official press release, but now that the news is out in the public, let's discuss how we solve this crisis."

      2. "The elephant in the room."
        1. An overweight person.
        2. A sarcastic remark to complain about a small room.
        3. An openly discussed subject.
        4. An obvious truth that is being ignored.
        1.  

          When someone mentions "...elephant in the room." they are suggesting that there is something very obvious and cannot be ignored. It is suppose to be a statement with sarcasm and irony. It's a situation when everyone understands that something is the truth but no one is willing to admit. That "truth" is the "elephant in the room."

          ex:

          "The NASA scientists didn't follow the protocol. That's the elephant in the room that we need to address."

          translation:

          "The NASA scientists didn't follow the protocol. This can no longer be ignored and we must address it."

      3. "At the end of the day."
        1. A scheduling conflict.
        2. The final analysis of an issue.
        3. At the end of a 24 hour period.
        4. Meeting adjourned.
        1.  

          I'm sure a lot of people have heard this said in the past. The phrase "at the end of the day" doesn't refer to the word "day" as a 24 hour period. It's another alternative to the common phrase "after all is said and done". This phrase is used to emphasize the underlying common sense and solution to a dispute.  

           

          ex:  

          "Your sales ideas and enthusiasm are great. However, at the end of the day, your sales figures will be the final measure of your success."

           

          translation:

          "Your sales ideas and enthusiasm are great. However, your success will be measured, ultimately, by your sales figures."

      4. "Finger on the pulse."
        1. Checking to see if somebody is nervous.
        2. Poking fun at somebody.
        3. Complete knowledge of a particular subject and/ or event.
        4. A doctor's prognosis.
        1. When a person is described to have his or her "finger on the pulse", it means that the person is really on top of what's going on. This person understands this situation from all angles and is constantly aware.

           

          ex:

          "Successful stock investors need to have their finger on the pulse of the market."

          translation:

          "Successful stock investors must be constantly aware of the market."

      5. "Comparing apples and oranges."
        1. Difficulty of making a decision.
        2. To compare two things that are very alike.
        3. Grocery shopping.
        4. To provide a false analogy to a situation.
        1. Sometimes we try to convey a point by comparing 2 different ideas or items. For example, we can say that writing a poem is like writing a song. That's a true statement. But if we say, writing a poem is like writing a computer program. That's an example of "comparing apples and oranges." The two are nothing alike and have been given a false analogy.  

           

          Here's an example of a dialogue:

           

          Person 1:

          "If you're going to purchase an environmentally friendly vehicle, you should get a motorcycle. They get much better gas milage than cars."

           

          Person 2:

          "You are comparing apples and oranges. You cannot compare motorcycles to cars."
