Last time, we talked about how I kept using the weather as an excuse for not going to the gym. Yesterday, I came across a friend of mine in the company, and she told me that she read the article I wrote. And she said to me, swimming is the new black, if you do not like running, try that!
What does this mean? Let’s have a look!
1.the new black
Since black is always in style in the fashion industry, saying something is “the new black” means that it is the hottest new thing. That’s the origin, and now this expression is no longer confined to the fashion industry.
“Swimming is the new black” means that swimming is on-trend/popular/fashionable right now.
Go and make a sentence with this phrase! (And then leave a comment!)
2.new to this game
This is another expression with the adjective “new” in it.
To say that you are new to this game means that you have never been involved in this sort of activity before.
e.g. I want to join Facebook but I don’t know how to start. I’m new to this game.
If people talk about bringing new blood into an organization or sports team, they are referring to new people who are likely to improve the organization or team.
Here’s an example:
Because of the poor results, the coach decided that the team needed some new blood.
That’s all. Have a nice one~
