bite your tounge

Explanation: What is an idiom?

stoping yourself from saying what's on your mind


-What are you doing this weekend?

-Nothing much really, I might go out with my boyfriend in the evening but besides that I don't have any plans. Why are you asking?

-Oh, I didn't realise you're still going out with Troye. He isn't the best looking guy.

- You know, I think you should learn to bite your tongue at times instead of saying whatever you like. I don't really care what you think about Troye, to be honest.

-I'm sorry.


This could be taken quite literally. If you hold or bite your tongue, you can't speak, so you aren't able to say what you want... or anything for that matter!
