I heard it straight
I m all agog
I m all ears
I m at the end of my tether
I m drawing a blank
I m fed up
I m holding the baby
I m in a bind
I m on tenterhooks
I m snowed under
I made a boo boo
I must see a man about
I relish that
I rued the decision
I ve got a bone to pick
I ve got your number
I was aghast
I was baffled
I was bamboozled
I was blown away
I was flabbergasted!
I was fobbed off
I was gutted
I was hoodwinked
I was nonplussed
I was shanghaied
I was stumped
I was taken aback

it costs a pretty penn
it cuts both ways
it did the trick
it drives me around the bend
It is incumbent on us
it knocked my socks off
it looks dicey
it rings a bell
it s a cinch
It s a dead giveaway
It s a fair cop
it s a gas!
it s a piece of cake
It s a shambolic situation
it s a steal
It s a stop gap
it s a toss up
It s all Greek to me
it s curtains for him
it s easy peasy
it s fishy
it s for a needy cause
It s going swimmingly
it s Greek to me
It s humongous
it s in the pipeline
it s infuriating
it s mind boggling
It s my shout!
It s not over till the fat lady sings
It s not rocket science
it s on the cards
it s six of one, half dozen of the
it s sweltering
It s the done thing
it s topsy turvy
it s topsyturvy
It s uncanny
It s up in the air
it takes two to tango
it tickled my fancy
it was a dead heat
it was pancaked
it was rectified
it was touch and go
