Here are a couple of idioms to talk about when you are preparing something. You’re getting ready and you want to have everything exactly in the right place, everything ready.
There are two idioms people use to say this. The first one is: get your ducks in a row. Your ducks in a row.
Duck, chicken, you know? Quack quack. Get your ducks in a row. Idioms are funny, you know? It makes me laugh. Get your ducks in a row.
In a row means all lined up, so get your ducks in a row.
“We have to get our ducks in a row to prepare for the new project. To get it ready to open we have to get everything all lined up, get our ducks in a row.” Okay?
And another one is: cross the T’s and dot the I’s.
The letter T has a cross. When you make a letter T there’s a line and a cross. And dot the I: line and dot. Dot the T’s- no, you don’t dot the T’s! Cross the T’s and dot the I’s.
It means we’re going to get everything in exactly the right place to prepare; then we will be ready. Cross the T’s and dot the I’s, okay?
Get our ducks in a row, cross the T’s, dot the I’s… Everything will be ready and set; ready to go.
Alright? Two idioms to talk about preparing.
So, what are you going to do today? Are you going to get all your ducks in a row to get ready for that thing? Or are you going to cross all the T’s, dot the I’s, get everything prepared?
Alright, have a nice day, bye-bye.
