"Get into a huddle" nghĩa là gì?

vào "chỗ kín" mà nói chuyện nhé :) Photo by Ben White on Unsplash.
'Get into a huddle' có từ huddle là hội ý riêng -> câu này có nghĩa là nói chuyện/thảo luận một cách riêng tư, bí mật với ai đó hay một nhóm nào đó.

Ví dụ
The frontpage (trang nhất) photographs on May 23, 2018 in Bengaluru and January 19, 2019 in Kolkata of the Mahagathbandhan represented a United Front against the BJP. Once this mission (nhiệm vụ) was accomplished (hoàn thành), the coalition (liên minh) would get into a huddle to select the leader of the House.

The two umpires (trọng tài môn cricket, tennis...) are walking on the field (sân đấu). The boys in pink get into a huddle and now the two Mumbai openers, Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are seen climbing down the stairs. Krishnappa Gowtham has the ball for Rajasthan.

The group and the mutual fund quickly get into a huddle and reach a settlement (hòa giải).

"Cock in the henhouse" nghĩa là gì?

Ê, kéo vậy tuột quần rồi sao? Photo by Quino Al on Unsplash.
'Cock in the henhouse' = con gà trống trong chuồng gà mái, ý chỉ một người đàn ông duy nhất trong môi trường toàn nữ.

Ví dụ
But in his prime (tuổi thanh xuân), “He looked like Edward G. Robinson. He wore a fedora (mũ fedora) and strutted (đi khệnh khạng) around like the biggest cock in the henhouse. He’d fight anybody anywhere. The violent (bạo lực) streak of this guy was so scary (đáng sợ).”

Tough decisions (quyết định khó khăn) had to be made, then, but such is life as the only cock in the henhouse.

“I know,” she laughs. “I can’t believe that I’ve taken one of the most wonderful parts written for a woman away from a woman.” But she points to the fact that Puck is played by a woman, as are all the Mechanicals, bar Bottom. “He really is the only cock in the hen house.”
