TODAY'S IDIOM: RUN OF THE MILL

"RUN OF THE MILL"



Something is run of the mill if it is ordinary and nothing special.

Example: I don't know why he won the competition. He wasn't terrible, but he wasn't anything special either; just a run of the mill singer as far as I could see.

Común y corriente.

Example sentences:


  • The restaurant we went to was nothing special, just run of the mill / El restaurante al que fuimos no era nada especial, era común y corriente.

  • The service was good, but the food was run of the mill or worse / El servicio era bueno, pero la comida era común y corriente.

Additional examples:

  • There wasn't much on TV so we just watched some run of the mill old cowboy movie.

  • Natasha says she's tired of going to run of the mill restaurants every night. She wants to go somewhere special.
