It's June! The beginning of summer and the end of the school year. A very sad time all round :(
But to cheer you up, I've brought you this final dose of idioms. Enjoy them and try to use in these days. It's the best way to learn new expressions.

IDIOM (n): an expression, word, or phrase that has a figurative meaning that is separate from the literal meaning or definition of the words of which it is made.

Poker face
Someone who has a poker face has an expressionless face that shows no emotion or reaction at all.
Face the music
If you have to face the music, you have to accept the unpleasant consequences of your actions.
"He was caught stealing. Now he has to face the music!"
A face like thunder
If someone has a face like thunder, they look very angry.
"When Dad is really angry, he has a face like thunder!"
Face like a wet weekend
If someone has a face like a wet weekend, they are wearing a sad expression and look miserable.
"What's wrong with Pete? He's got a face like a wet weekend"
