Step 2

Read the following dialogue to see the idioms in context:

Johanna:Why are you looking so upset?
Len:Dan dumped me yesterday.  I’ve just seen him kissing Maria in the park.
Johanna:I can imagine, it must’ve made your blood boil! Honestly, I think he was not your kind of guy. Forget about him and cheer up! Let’s go and watch a movie.
Len:Thanks but I am feeling blue right now. I’m not into going out, sorry.
Joahnna:Aww… Remember how downhearted I was, when I broke up with Sam? It reduced me to tears to think we were no longer together. But later I realized he didn’t care that much. So, there was no point in wasting my time for someone like him. I am sure you will feel better soon, you just need some time.
Len:Yeah, you are right. You know what, his pictures on my phone are getting on my nerves. I’m deleting them right now!
Johanna: Here we go!
