More commonly used  idioms

So you have any other words/idioms ?

  I was born in the year of the monkey myself, but apart from picking stuff out of my butt and eating it, you wouldn't know.

I'm a dog, but my wife, parents and in-laws are all horses. Giddy up!

canuck888:

so are you 43 or 55.

A trick question is to ask what animal of the Chinese zodiac a person is and one can then guess their age pretty accurately. I always answer Bu Zhi Dao when I am asked and that way they do not know my age
