If someone knows something like a word, a phrase, a name, but they can't seem to recall it at the exact moment, they may say ... usually in an exasperated tone of voice, "It's on The Tip of my Tongue!"
Of course, the most frustrating part is that you know that you know it, but you can't seem to get it from your brain and come out of your mouth. I know that with me, after something like that happens, I will wake up in the middle of the night with the information! But then, at least, I can finally sleep peacefully. :)
See you tomorrow to finish off another week of idioms!
