Now we're going to have a little guessing contest.

We're talking expressions. Or bywords or whatever you whant. Someone (who eventually will be the winner of the previous round) will giive an expression used where he lives. Preferrablly in English, and preferablly something that isn't that easy to figure out. If you live in the same country, and it is a quite common expression you're not allowed to guess. The first to guess right wins and gets to pick the next expression. That's the rules, and if it is too hard we can alter the rules a little. I'll start:

(Named this one in my fav lyrics btw. No clues to get there though...)

Pretend that it rains. What are you acually doing (pretend that it rains is NOT the right answer).

An excuse for not going outside or showering?

I don't understand (and the abuse of the parenthesis do not make the reading easier, mind you).
You have to guess the other's expression but he has to give you the expression so you can guess it?

"Pretend that it rains" is a saying in his country. What could that mean? First to get it right starts the next round.

Just a question: and if nobody guess what you want? What happens, don't have any period of time to continue trying?

Makes sense. If no one can get it in a week, or we get bored, give us the answer and pass it on to someone else. Sound good, Ubereil?

*Someone mentioned it was a bit too long. But let's say three days, to keep a decent tempo.

And nobody's ben close so far. A tip is that it really doesn't have anything to do with whater.

I've never made it to your country so how else would I have ever learned about this unique idiom of your culture? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif" alt="" />

I like your countries idioms better than mine.
Here's one:

Hmm... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> It has something to do with trouble... Does it have to be specific? In this case it seems like you could use it in all kinds of situations...

Erm... the point of the whole contest is guessing...
