Idiom Scenario 1:


It is Sam's big day.  The marathon that he has been training for all year is today.  Sam's weight is perfect.  He feels great as he lines up on the starting line for the big race.  Three hours later, Sam has finished running the marathon and feels fantastic, although a little tired.  There is no rest for Sam as he must attend a press conference and then a party. 
By the time Sam gets home, do you think that all he will want to do is put his feet up?
