"Not in a month of Sundays" nghĩa là gì?

Tháng nào không có Chủ Nhật ta? Photo by Adam Tinworth on Unsplash.
'Not in a month of Sundays' là không nằm trong tháng có Chủ nhật, nghĩa là một điều gì đó gần như không xảy ra.

Ví dụ
Is it a self-driving surfboard (ván lướt sóng)? Does it feature an autopilot mode (chế độ lái tự động)? No way, Jose. Is it bulletproof (chống đạn)? Does it come with a hidden GPS device? Not in a month of Sundays. It's just a regular surfboard.

"There were hundreds of people standing at the side of the road; it wouldn't be allowed today, not in a month of Sundays. There was great excitement (vui mừng) and people came from all over in Cork, Kerry and Dublin just to see this.

"Did I think we were going to get that price? No, not in a month of Sundays, but when you get those special horses and two people want them then anything can happen. This family can get you a good horse and a number of people have said to me she's the nicest filly in the sale, which is a lovely thing to hear."
