STORY SEED 8 – MATADOR
is now part of an exciting new compendium of English Idiom.
English Idiom: “Make the dust fly” also “make the feathers or fur fly.”
“To stir matters up, cause a commotion or disturbance…The first usage alludes to the results of a vigorous house cleaning effort. The two variants, both dating from the early 1800’s allude to what happens when a hunting dog is set on a bird or a rabbit.”
