Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 144. The proverb today is to blow
one's own horn or blow one's own trumpet. Either one is okay. They have the same
meaning. All right. Let's look at the note here. If someone
blows one's own horn or trumpet he or she may openly brag about one's skills,
abilities, achievements, etc. Okay. Let's continue. The origin is believed to have
come from the fact that important men or important people you know, high-level.
During the Middle Ages used to have a herald spout stories about how great
their accomplishments were. All right. So what is a herald? A herald is here. A herald
was someone in the past who delivered official messages or announcements and
especially for kings or queens. All right. So what did a herald do ? We say here
the, the ... Well not only did he spout all these great stories saying they
did this and they did that and they're so great. But the process usually began
by blowing a horn which later became a trumpet. So this is where the idea comes
from. To blow one's own horn or to blow one's own trumpet because they actually
had somebody who had that position that was a herald. Herald also has the meaning
of like to praise too. So that person had that position. They went out there
announced. He blew the horn (boom , boom, boom , boom ) Something like that, and then
said all these great things about these important people, especially royalty. All
right. Let's, let's continue. Let's look at the three examples we have here.
Example number one. It is better to be modest. Don't blow your own horn.
Well somebody you know, giving somebody else advice might say that. Number two.
She tries to blow her own horn any chance she gets. Well maybe this person
that does this often. And number three. Yes Sometimes you do hear it used this way. I
don't mean to my own horn. So sometimes when people
they want to say something good about themselves, but they don't want to sound
like they're bragging. So sometimes they may say that. Well you know, I'm trying to
be modest. I don't mean to blow my own horn but, I once won an award for that. So
just letting somebody know. Okay . Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it is clear. I hope it was
informative. Thank you for your time. Bye- bye,
