오늘의 영어 표현은 hold your horses입니다.

When someone tells you to hold your horses, you are being hasty about something and they want you to slow down or be patient. Hold your horses는 ‘침착해. 조금만 기다려. 흥분하지마’라는 뜻입니다. 예전에 서커스단이 거리를 지나갈 때면 코끼리를 몰던 사람들이 말들이 흥분하지 않게 꼭 잡고 있으라고 소리를 질렀다고 합니다. 말이 코끼리 냄새를 맡으면 놀라기 때문이지요. 여기서 오늘의 표현인 Hold your horses가 나왔다고 합니다. Now we’ll listen to this conversation for the last time. Listen carefully
