I must say that 4K3 has turned out to be a really pleasant class to teach. So, as a show of gratitude for their cooperation, this post goes out to them.
The question posed to me this morning: “What’s a storm in a teacup?”
Answer: A situation where people get very angry or worried about something that is not important.
Usage: All this anxiety about changes to tonight’s choice of dessert – it is really a storm in a teacup.
