Ví dụ
Before long, she was talking a blue streak, and I had to put down the particular paper I was grading at the time, and listen.

Ma, she's talking a blue streak. I don't understand what she's saying, but they're words. A good speech therapist (nhà trị liệu), and she'll be fine.

And Parks, who spoke with a warm southern drawl (nói kéo dài, lè nhè), could talk a blue streak about his boyhood in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the years he spent as child actor in New York and Los Angeles...

Billy never stopped talking. Howie's mom used the phrase “talk a blue streak” to mean someone who talked incessantly (không ngừng). Billy Dent talked streaks in all kinds of shades of blue: sky blue, navy blue, midnight blue. You name it, Billy Dent said it.
