Welcome to the Idiom of the Week. Every week, I’m going to explain an idiom and include a writing prompt. An idiom is an expression whose meaning is different than the actual meaning of the words.

You wouldn’t want to give away too much because you might not have enough left. Unlike hugs, where the more you give, the more you get, pieces of your mind don’t come back.
