|hell's half acre [B]
||(See all over hell's half acre)
||bad, awful, unfair
||If we have to pay our medical bills, it's a hellish arrangement!
||help someone, lend a hand
||The Wongs are good neighbors - always willing to help out.
||please take some, dig in, eat up
||Help yourself to hamburgers. Don't wait to be served.
||(See a helping hand)
|hemming and hahing
||saying "ahem...ah" while thinking what to say, beat around the bush
||When we asked him about the missing money, there was a lot of hemming and hahing.
|here's mud in your eye
||here is a toast to you, drink up
