Phrase of the Day 41: 'dead body'

"Over my dead body!"

definition: you say this expression when you will not allow a person to do something. The literal meaning is that you will stand in the way of that person and only if they kill you and walk over your dead body will they be able to do what they want.

(jen pres mou mrtvolu)

example: "You kids are not going out in the cold without your jackets! Not over my dead body!"
