Idiom of the Week – “Wiped Out”



It’s been “one of those days”.  You know how it is …

You have to get up very early in the morning.  You spend hours sitting in traffic.  After you get to work, you run around like a crazy person and never get a break.  On top of all that, when you get home after work (more traffic!), you have to go grocery shopping, do laundry, and cook dinner.  But you don’t want to do any of that – because you are completely wiped out.

Perhaps your English classes in Miami have you wiped out.  Maybe you’re wiped out because of so much work.  Maybe not sleeping so much has you wiped out.  Perhaps the incredible number of things you have to do is wiping you out.  No matter the reason, you’re not sure if you’re going to be able to cook dinner.  You’re so wiped out that you will probably order some food to be delivered.  One less thing to worry about.

Of course, by this point, you know that if you are wiped out, you are exhausted.  You’re very tired.  You don’t want to move.  You just want to relax and fall asleep.

You’re not just tired, you’re wiped out.  Relax.  Take it easy.  Tomorrow’s a new day.
