I really think a lot of idioms have different meanings regions to regions which only seems logical!

Back in the Midwest, to turn on a dime meant that things can change or did change in a moments notice. I've noticed other idioms posted here that have meant different things as well. I think it's very interesting

If something happens or is done in the blink of an eye, it happens or is done very quickly. So quickly as to seem almost imperceptible.

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone; For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own".

Homoe, what about phrases of thought which are only uttered through mnemomic device ....like the hook signature melody from the movie, Jaws???

Mnemonic Device (definition): Techniques an person uses to help improve one's ability to remember. It's an memory technique to help your brain to better encode and recall important information.

No words are spoken. Yet, in particular cases, the hook signature line of an orchestral arrangement, in this case it's from the movie Jaws, which invokes the signal that there is something scary going on--- something that isn't always readily seen by the human eye.

Horrible depressing "monkey chatter" that assaults your brain in the early morning hours when you first wake up.

Dump that crap. That's why you have a glorious happy day ahead of you.
