下面粗体的英文成语中都会有一个词涉及人体的某个部位。先读一读下面的小故事,然后猜猜由它们组成的成语的意思吧。

Last year my English class was full of characters. That's a polite way of saying it had some unusual people that I'll never forget. One student was such a hard worker that he learned all the idioms in our book by heart. He was always saying things like "I'm on cloud nine", or "I'm green with envy". We never knew if he meant what he said or if he was just practicing English. Another student had a sweet tooth. She would bake lots of bread and cakes and bring them to every class for us to share during breaks. Two students met in the class and fell head over heels in love. We were all invited to their wedding and had a great time. Then there was a student who was always pulling someone's leg. For example, one day before class, he put a long homework assignment on the board and made us think that the teacher had given it. We all had long faces until the teacher came in. Then we realized that someone had played a joke on us.
