Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 253. The idiom today is come and
go. Okay. So let's take a look at the note here. This idiom refers to something that
exists or happens for a short period of time and then seems to suddenly
disappear or go away. Or we have a second meaning where you can come and then
depart again. So somebody could literally come and then leave. So it has both
meanings. Let's look at the first example here. My chronic back pain comes and goes.
Some days are better than others. So this, this one will continue to return
and then go away again. Continue to return and then go away. So we often mean
it in that way. It comes and goes. So it may repeatedly come and go. All right. Let's
look at number 2 here. Prime Ministers come and go, but the royal family
continues to keep their position , their positions decade after decade or maybe
even century after century. They just go on and on, but Prime Minister's come and
go all the time. Every four years or five years or however long they last. Okay.
Number three. Fashions come and go all the time. Sometimes an older fashion may
even make a comeback after a few decades. Yeah. So we hear this one a lot with
fashion. We often say fashions come and go. They're here and then they're gone. Before
you know it. What happened ? It's over. Ah ! That's out of fashion already. Okay
good. And number four. This is you know to the second meaning here. MR. Smith
already came and went for the day. You will have to try to catch him tomorrow.
So I don't maybe somebody wanted to see a doctor. Or somebody they went there and
he already left for the day. He came in he was there for a while. For a number of
hours, but he already left he already went home. Okay. So he came and went.
Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.
Bye-bye.
