You’re out to dinner with your man when he looks at you with fire in his eyes and utters, “Reheat the cabbage!”
Uh, first of all, you hate cabbage. Second of all, that’s what the waiter is food, man!
Actually, you’ve misunderstood. Just like Latinos have sayings in Español to express love and lust, so do people from various ethnic backgrounds. In Italy, “reheat the cabbage” means “to rekindle a former romance.” So, don’t get mad at your man for sending you to the kitchen with the sous chef. Get pissed because he wants to dump you for a former flame. Cold-blooded!
Not all sayings are full of betrayal. In fact, here are some lovely idioms from all over the world and their meaning!
