Đừng như vậy chứ! Photo by Skyler King

“Get the shivers” = bị run rẩy, rùng mình -> nghĩa là bắt đầu sợ hãi và khiếp sợ.

Ví dụ
“Each day you think that you are going to be okay, but then in the afternoon you start to get the shivers again, and start coughing and the temperature goes up. It’s strange coming into a hospital and not seeing visitors, everybody is in PPE and it’s very quiet.”

“I get the shivers when I think about it. That incident occurred against Nashville in the playoffs… It was coarse, nasty and shocking, but it was just the tip of the iceberg (Chỉ là bề nổi của tảng băng; chỉ mới là sự bắt đầu)… It was verbal attacks, he said horrible things,” Franzen is quoted as saying in an English translation of the interview broadcast on TSN.

You're sitting on your couch in the dark alone, watching a scary movie. The killer is walking toward an unsuspecting victim, then suddenly jumps out at her. In that moment, the hairs on your body stand up, and you get a shiver down your spine. When you go for a walk on a crisp (mát, sảng khoái) morning, the same thing happens. When the music swells during your favorite song, you get the shivers again, this time with the little goosebumps (nổi da gà) on your arms that appear when you get that sensation.
