1.  Πήρα το κολάι … !

‘Πήρα το κολάι …’ είναι μία έκφραση που μόνο γλωσσολόγοι όπως ο sarantakos.wordpress.com ή/και ο periglwssio.blogspot.com μπορούν να σας αναλύσουν με εκπαιδευτικο/ψυχαγωγικό τρόπο. Εγώ, απλά, θα σας πω ότι η έκφραση αυτή σημαίνει: έχω (τελικά) μάθει να χειρίζομαι (κάνω) κάτι καλά … .

Στην αγγλική λέμε:

1.  get the knack (of something)

2.  get the hang (of something)

3. get the feel (of something)

Παράδειγμα:

I was having difficulty putting up wallpaper but after a couple  of hours I got the knack of it. (έμαθα πως να το κάνω)

I was teaching Johnny to swim and after a few lessons he got the hang of it.
