Spanish Idioms and Proverbs #2?

I really liked the Spanish Idioms and Proverbs bonus skill, and I would LOVE for Duolingo to make another one, wouldn't you? Also, if you know any other cool Spanish proverbs or sayings PLEASE post them here! ( And you might just get a lingot! ; ) Thanks for commenting!

    i would love having new bonus skills!


    It's great to have an idioms bonus skill, but I was disappointed in how few idioms were offered. The same scant handful of idioms were repeated within the one lesson, and that was the end of it. This is surely a section which could be expanded.
