Reacting to events – kako da reaguju na događaje na engleskom jeziku?

Postoje trenuci kada emocije preplave, ali da opiše događaje jednostavno nemam riječi. Na maternjem jeziku, mi često koriste fraze kao što su održivi «razorene želudac iz smejem,» «die smeje», «eksplodirati s ljutnjom», «biti spreman da tone u zemlju,» i tako dalje. P. engleski je ništa manje emotivni. Da bi mogli opisati što je moguće jasnije kako ljudi reagiraju na ono što se događa, predlažemo da se razmotri kao što idiomatske izraza kao primjer malih situacija koje su se dogodile u istoj porodici, kada su svi bili:
