  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 231. The idiom today is to be like

  • a deer caught in the headlights. Okay. So if you've ever if you've ever driven

  • anywhere where there is actually deer on the side of the road, you understand this

  • idiom perfectly. Because this is just what it's like.

  • So the headlights of course are the headlights on a car. And if you are

  • driving by and a deer sees you they actually freeze. There's that huh. They

  • just stand there like that. You know most other animals will run.

  • They run as fast as they can one way or the other. But a deer is different. A deer

  • is like totally confused and it's a big animal so you got to be very careful. You

  • don't want to hit a deer. One you feel sorry for the deer. You don't want to

  • hurt any animal, but a deer is such a big animal but you know, it could be

  • dangerous even to you. You could damage your car very seriously. So you don't

  • want to do it. So if they're in the middle of the road

  • usually it's up to the driver to either stop or go around the deer because the

  • deer gets frozen in fear. They just stand there almost like they can't believe

  • like oh my god what is that ? Even though you think they should be used to it.

  • Because you know, the same deer probably crossed the roads but they always look

  • like it was the first time they've ever seen headlights. So that's what we say so

  • we say that somebody might look like a deer caught in the headlights. Okay. Let's

  • uh let's continue here. Let's look at the note. So if someone is like a deer caught

  • in the headlights, he or she is frozen in fear. That's what we mean. All right. So

  • let's look at a couple of examples here. When James claimed to see a UFO, he said he

  • felt like a deer caught in the headlights. Yeah. So for a deer it might

  • almost be the same way. It's almost like a person seeing one of those spaceships

  • coming down and just being frozen and not being able to move and

  • not knowing what to do. So okay good. Let's look at the second one.

  • When Sally caught her daughter with her hands in the cookie jar. Yes. The

  • expression on her daughter's face was like a deer caught in the headlights. So

  • the mother must have caught the daughter red-handed like she knew she was doing

  • something wrong. She was putting her hands into the cookie jar and she got

  • caught and turns around like.. Oh you're. that's supposed to be here. All right. So

  • that's what we mean. So, so we use this anytime we say somebody looks like you

  • they have an expression that they're frozen in fear. Yeah. So they look like a

  • deer caught in the headlights. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for

  • your time. Bye-bye.
