"Home and dry" nghĩa là gì?

Tỷ số 2-0 là quá đủ để MU đăng quang Europa League.

'Home and dry' = home free (having successfully achieved or being within sight of achieving one's objective) -> nghĩa là chắc chắn thành công (assuredly successful).

Ví dụ
Derry were already home and dry by the time Ruairi Convery smashed a 21-yard free to the net late on.

When Murray launched a counter-attack in which Saili and Earls combined before Zebo raced clear, Munster were almost home and dry.

If you can get it all inch perfect, with your nose in front, then you should be home and dry and on your way to the chequered flag.

The reason we’ve got this unexpected General Election is that Theresa May saw that poll lead and she thought she would come home, home and dry.

"Dry as dust" nghĩa là gì?

'(as) Dry as dust' = khô như bụi -> nghĩa là rất khô (extremely dry); tẻ nhạt, buồn chán (very dull; very boring).

Ví dụ
This dry-as-dust documentary paints a portrait of a man on a mission.

The young are often bored by what they are learning, the staff are bored by teaching the dry-as-dust curriculum, and the schools as a result are drab, unexciting places.

People who for years couldn’t find a manifesto they could embrace with all their hearts, who found the Blair era sterile and dry as dust, are thrilled to finally see their ideas in print.

There is more talking than sex, and that talk’s comic content is often dry as dust, mostly without the easy laughs and obvious comic beats of, say, Woody Allen or Noah Baumbach or Agnès Jaoui.
