Être soupe au lait

Le mot du jour : “être soupe au lait”
You know how sometimes, you heat some milk in a pan, and before you know it, it has boiled over and there is sticky milk all over the stove?

Well, “être soupe au lait” (to be a milk soup) describes people who can get angry very quickly, who have a short temper.

I guess I can be a little bit “soupe au lait” myself, sometimes. The good thing is that usually the anger goes back down as quickly as it erupted, just like the milk in the pan 🙂

“À la semaine prochaine” (See you next week) for another expression about soup!
