That's a doozy!

What the heck is a 'doozy' anyway?
A 'doozy' is a colloquialism that means...
Something extraordinary and one of a kind... we usually use it to describe something unfortunate, negative, or difficult (like bad storms, black eyes, hard tests) in a light-hearted way.

So if you had to write an especially tough test, afterwards, you might say, "Wow, that was a doozy of a test!"

Idioms are great practice and give you some insight into our English speaking world. If you would like to practice your English conversation and use lots of idioms like this one, book a lesson with me.

I'd love to meet you! 😊 ✨
