Today’s idiom: “Stop and smell the roses”

13 Nov

It is time to introduce a wonderful cartoon character, Hägar the Horrible, whose life and adventures are full of useful English lessons.

In case you haven’t met him before, Hägar the Horrible is a Viking who likes to invade England and France. He is a very paradoxical character – a brave fighter, but also a lazy husband, and often very silly.

Now, today’s idiom, “stop and smell the roses”: Modern life is very hectic, and it is easy to forget the simple pleasures that make life enjoyable. To remind us that we should relax sometimes, focus on the natural beauty of life, and forget about the daily stresses, we use this idiom.
