Today’s idiom: “To sweep someone off his/her feet”

6 Aug

To sweep someone off their feet has nothing to do with using a broom. Although, if you get in the way of someone sweeping the floor, this may happen quite literally!

We use the verb “sweep” not only for cleaning, but also for big, fast movements. So “to sweep someone off their feet” means to make someone fall very much in love with you, usually quite suddenly, and usually with some romantic actions.
