Phrasal-Nouns – Letter B (With Prepositions)

–  Prepositional Phrasal-Nouns – Letter B  –


  • A (Real) Blast From The Past – This is an Adjectival, Metaphorical, Idiomatic and Prepositional Phrasal-Noun which is used to describe something which was a part of, or represents a memory (fond or otherwise) from the past.  This phrase is used when the thing which is it describing has not been thought about for a very long time, has probably been forgotten, and the arrival of which came as a big surprise.

“Seeing my some of my old friends from Grateful Dead Tour was a real blast from the past.  I completely forgot about the week that we travelled together through the redwood forests of Northern California…  (but understandably-so).” 😉

(Just Notice that the word “Real” is often used with this phrase, but is not necessary.)

A Set-Back – See:  Phrasal Nouns – Letter “S” for “Set”

(something is) Water Under The Bridge – See:  Phrasal Nouns – Letter “W” for “Water”
