AE 448 – Expression: Get Cold Feet
G’day, guys. What is going on?
I hope you’ve been having a ripper of a week. I’m back again. It’s another Sunday and it is another expression episode, guys, and today’s episode is going to be a ripper. So, it’s going to be awesome. We’re going to be talking about penguins. That was the intro scene there that you had at the start. It was a video clip from BBC Earth’s YouTube channel. So, there’ll be a link in the transcript for that. If you love wildlife, definitely go check out that channel. But that was David Attenborough speaking.
I’m a massive fan of David Attenborough and it was his 92nd birthday probably two weeks ago on the 8th of May. He was born and a few days after the Queen of England. So, he’s 92 years old. Pretty crazy.
Anyway, a quick anecdote. Yeah. I grew up always watching David Attenborough films. So, my parents were both zoologists and they met at Melbourne University, I think, in the 70s, maybe the late 70s is when they met, and yeah, obviously got married, had kids, and we grew up with a heavy dose of wildlife. So, we would watch docos, we’d go camping, we’d go to the zoo. Absolutely loved animals. So, that was my sort of upbringing and obviously why I ended up going to university, the same university that they met at, and studying the same thing they did zoology.

Anyway guys, let’s dive into today’s episode. We’ll be covering the expression ‘to get cold feet’, and this was suggested by Dan in the Facebook group. So, we’ll get into that.
But First let’s do a joke. So, the joke here is related to penguins. You know, had to connect these two things.
What Do penguins eat for lunch? So, penguins, the small little birds that live in the ocean. What do they eat for lunch? ‘Ice-burgers’. ‘Ice-burgers’. Do you get it?
So, Obviously, icebergs are those large pieces of ice that break off in Antarctica or in the Arctic, in the north… northern hemisphere.
And ‘burgers’ are obviously, you know, hamburgers or chicken burgers. They’re a kind of food where you have lettuce and cheese, bacon, other kinds of meat, and you have bread on top. That’s a burger, right? So, the joke here is ‘ice-burgers’.
Anyway, guys, today’s expression, ‘to get cold feet’, and you may also hear this as ‘to have cold feet’. So, let’s go through and define these words guys.
‘To have’. If you have something, you possess something, okay? You own the thing, you have the thing, you possess the thing.
‘To get’. If you get something you acquire that thing. So, you didn’t have it to begin with and then you got it, you acquired it, and now you possess it. And this can be physical things like, you know, a burger or it can be, I guess… well, still physical, but not like an item, okay? Like, you can get cold. You can get hot. You can get wealthy. You know? It doesn’t have to be something you can hold in your hands.
‘Cold’. ‘Cold’. I’m sure you guys know it’s the sort of… the temperature that is incredibly low. It’s not hot. If you’re shivering, if you’re out snowboarding in winter, you’re probably going to get cold.
And The last one here, guys, ‘feet’ the plural of ‘a foot’. This is the lower extremity of the leg below the ankle and you would usually stand on your feet. You would walk on your feet. You would run on your feet, right? Your foot, each foot, has five toes, a big toe, a little toe, and the three toes in between.
Anyway guys, what does the expression ‘to get cold feet’ mean? So, if you ‘get cold feet’ it means that you lose your nerve, that you lose your confidence, that you become timid, and it’s usually used as a polite way of saying… well, not necessarily polite, but a nice way of saying something like ‘to chicken out’, ‘to wuss out’, or ‘to bail on’ something and these are sort of phrasal verbs that mean to abandon something because you got too nervous, right? You wussed out, you chickened out, you bailed out.
So, where did this originate from? We’re not really sure but it originates from about the 19th century, the late 19th century, though again, the exact origin isn’t known. However, experts suspect that this expression may have something to do with the military, an environment which certainly offers a plethora of things to fear, situations to run away from, to bail on, to get cold feet from, and you would also imagine that there are plenty of situations where you could get cold feet, literally, in the army, you know? You’re running around in your boots and it rains, you got cold feet.

So, as usual guys, let’s go through some examples of how I would use the expression ‘to get cold feet’ or ‘to have cold feet’ in day to day life. Okay?
So, example number one. Example number one is that you are at a wedding. Okay? And there’s a bride and groom, there’re two people who are about to get married. I mean, well, in Australia there’s gay marriage so it could be two grooms or two brides, but I imagine it’s a bride and groom in this example.
So, the bride hasn’t shown up. She hasn’t come to the wedding ceremony. And this is a classic example of where you’re likely to hear this expression. So, maybe she’s running late because of photography. You know, they’re trying to take photos of somewhere and she’s not happy with the photos. Maybe she is trying to do her makeup still or get her wedding dress on. Or maybe there’s transport issues, you know? Maybe they’re getting delayed because of that, the bridal party is getting delayed. Or maybe she’s changed her mind. Maybe she doesn’t want to get married to this guy anymore. So, she’s decided, “I’m scared. I’m nervous. I’m not confident about this decision. I’ve got cold feet.”. Okay? So, she’s got cold feet. She’s changed her mind. She’s lost her nerve, her confidence. She’s got cold feet. And if the crowd start murmuring, maybe they’re gossiping. It’s been a long time. She hasn’t shown up yet. They might be thinking, “Is she going to leave the groom standing at the altar because she’s got cold feet?”.
Example number two. Alright so pubs in Australia, these are places you can go and drink, and you can eat food, usually alcoholic beverages, and you’ll often see things like bands or single musicians playing at these venues. Pubs in Australia often have events called ‘Open mic nights’. So, ‘an open mic night’ is where you have the microphone for someone to sing into or play into… is it’s open for anyone to use. You just have to get in line. Right? You have to put your hand up and say, “I want to sing. I want to read out some poetry. Maybe I want to do some stand-up comedy.” Right? So, you’re a performer. You’ve gone to a pub. It’s a… it’s an open mic night, and you’ve told all your friends to come with you, because you want to get up and do some stand-up comedy or maybe you want to read a poem or maybe you want to sing a song. If your turn comes up, though, and you freak out, you get a little nervous, you lose your confidence, and you become timid, you might decide not to get up on stage and sing the song, read the poem, do some stand-up comedy. You’ve got cold feet. You have cold feet, because you’ve wussed out, you’ve chickened out, you’ve got cold feet.
Example number three here, guys, and this was something that I used to get faced with all the time. When I was doing jiujitsu my coach would always be hassling us, always asking us, always pestering us, trying to sort of guilt trip us into competing, because obviously he wanted the team to compete as much as possible and do really well. So, he would always be like, “Everyone needs to compete!”. I’m the kind of person that despite, you know, being able to create these kinds of podcast episodes and videos, I don’t like really being in front of a lot of people, to be honest, especially, when it’s like you fighting someone and there’s half a thousand people watching you. Okay? So, he would ask us to do this and quite often I would chicken out of entering the competition. I would wuss out. I would get cold feet. So, I would get too nervous. It would… the thought of standing in front of all these people and fighting someone else and potentially losing in front of all these people would give me cold feet. It would make me nervous. But imagine, okay, I did end to this competition. You could also use this expression if the time came to get on the mat and fight, so, they’ve said “Pete and…”, you know, the other guy “…Tim! It’s your turn to fight. Come out on the mat!”. If I ran away, if I didn’t show up, if I chickened out, if I wussed out, I’d gotten cold feet. I had become too timid and lost my nerve. Okay?
So, I hope you understand the expression, guys, ‘to get cold feet’ or ‘to have cold feet’. It is just to lose nerve, to lose confidence, and not do something. To bail on something. And then, if you want to kind of belittle the person a little bit and make it a little bit more sort of like you’re judging the person and making fun of them, you can say ‘to wuss out’, ‘to chicken out’, and then, just in general you can say ‘to bail on something’, which is just to leave something, to avoid something.
So, hopefully, those are some good phrasal verbs you can use when talking to your friends.
So, as usual, let’s go through a listen and repeat exercise, guys. This is your chance to practice your pronunciation. So, just listen then repeat after me, guys. Whether you want an Australian accent, whether you just want a prefect an American accent, a British accent, or just work on whatever accent you have, just try and say these words after me. Okay? Let’s go.
To get cold
To get cold feet x 5
A lot of stop consonants in their sentence, guys, when we’re talking about connected speech. A lot of stop consonants.
So, we’ll do this now using the conditional, guys. So, we’ll say “I would never get cold feet”. We’ll conjugate through that. And I’m going to contract a ‘would’ on to the respective pronouns for each sentence, right? So, instead of saying, ‘I would’, I’ll say ‘I’d’. Okay? So, listen and repeat after me.
I’d never get cold feet
You’d never get cold feet
She’d never get cold feet
He’d never get cold feet
We’d never get cold feet
They’d never get cold feet
It’d never get cold feet
Great job, guys. Great job. Remember, if you would like to learn the pronunciation of Australian English in much more depth. I really recommend signing up to the Aussie English Classroom, guys, where you will get a video breaking down all of the connected speech, the pronunciation, and other aspects of spoken English from this exercise as well as previous exercises in the podcast episode. So, sign up to the Aussie English Classroom, guys, and give it a go.
Anyway, before we finish up, I want to talk about fairy penguins or little penguins. Okay? So, today, we had at the very start of this episode a scene where David Attenborough was at Phillip Island talking about the smallest penguin in the world, the little penguins.
Now these guys weigh only about a kilogram and they only stand about 30 centimeters tall. They’re incredibly small and they are the world’s smallest penguins.
You can find these little penguins in southern Australia and in New Zealand in scattered colonies along the coastlines of these countries. And in Australia, you’ll find them all the way from out west in the city of Perth all the way east to Sydney, and then in the south, you’ll find them around Melbourne and in Tasmania. Okay?
So, if you come to Melbourne, though, they’re very easy to see, and you will see them at Phillip Island at night. This is probably the best place to go if you want to see them coming out of water and walking up the beach to their burrows. You can go to the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island and you can also see them at the St Kilda pier in Melbourne.
There are estimated to be about a million penguins left, these small penguins, little penguins, 32,000 of which live at Phillip Island. So, that’s pretty crazy. I guess, that’s only about 3.2%.
How do you tell the difference between a male and a female? That’s a good question. Well, you can’t ask them. So, you have to look at beaks. The adult females have a thin beak, much thinner than males, and the males have a distinct hook on the end of their beaks.
What do they eat? Every day, little Penguins have to go into the water, into the ocean, into the sea, and they eat up to 25% of their body weight, which is about 250 grams. And they’re eating fish like Barracouta, Anchovies, Red Cod, Pilchards, and even cephalopods like squid.
They can swim about two to four kilometres an hour, and for reference, humans can swim about six kilometres an hour.
Little penguins live in holes in the ground and we call these holes ‘burrows’, and this is a place where they can rest, they can nest, they can moult, and they can obviously get protection too from things like predators and extreme weather in Australia. Like, quite often it gets to about 40 degrees in summer and the best way to avoid that is going underground.
So, depending on the season, they can spend anywhere between 1 and 30 days at sea. That blows my mind. Imagine swimming around for a month. So, while breeding they return regularly to incubate the eggs and feed their chicks. So, that would be during the summer season. But during the winter season, they spend most of their time out to sea hunting for fish and squid for food.
These penguins don’t mate for life and if the breeding success of a couple of penguins is really low, they might look for new mates.
Little penguins lay two eggs similar in size to a chicken’s and both parents take turns incubating these eggs, which takes about 35 days.
Both parents then feed the chicks by regurgitating fish and squid caught at sea, and the chicks leave their parents and head out to sea for the first time at 7-11 weeks of age.
Their parents don’t teach them anything. They don’t learn how to swim. They don’t learn how to catch food. They don’t learn when they have the nest. It’s all based on instinct.
Penguins spend about 80 percent of their lives in the ocean. So, what’s that? One out of every five days on average they get out of the water. And on average, every single day they swim between 15 and 50 kilometres.
They’ve been recorded diving as deep as 72 metres. However, an average dive is between about 5-20 metres when they’re hunting prey.
Little penguins also have some really cool adaptations. Like all penguins, they have modified wings, which are called ‘flippers’, and the only flying they do is through the water.
They have a gland to spread oil on their feathers when they’re preening in order to keep the outer feathers waterproof so they don’t get soaked, they don’t get drenched and then get cold.
They have a streamlined shape, waterproof feathers on the outside of their body, a layer of down next to the skin to trap air and keep them warm under those waterproof feathers, and they also have a salt gland above their eyes, which helps them filter salt from seawater so they get access to freshwater.
Anyway, guys, that is the episode for today. I hope that you think little penguins are as bad-arse as I think they are.

In today’s episode of Walking With Pete I talk to you about my new recent guilty pleasure, playing Pokémon Go.[sdm_download id=”917″ fancy=”1″]
Walking With Pete: My Guilty Pleasure… Pokémon Go
G’day guys and welcome to this late night episode of Walking With Pete, at least, it’s a late night for me. It’s like 11PM and I’m just having a walk in ah… Princes Park, which is a really really big park near Melbourne University in the city of Melbourne, obviously, Victoria, Australia. And I’m walking around here a little bit ashamed, a little bit embarrassed, but at the same time a little bit content because I’m playing the game Pokémon Go. I’m sure many of you will have heard of it, if not all of you, and I’m sure that among our listeners, among my listeners, that there will be some people who play the game, who’ve tried the game and didn’t like it, and then a bunch of people who will absolutely hate the game, but more recently I’ve been playing it while I’m going for walks just because it’s kind of fun and I guess it’s a little bit nostalgic for me. I used to play this game when I was a little kid. So, I think the first game came out when I would’ve been… probably 10 years old, maybe 11 years old, when I was at primary school, and um… So, that would’ve been like 1995, 1996, and I remember playing the very first game and absolutely adored it. I mean I loved it. It was really cool, you know, walking through this world and… and finding all these little monsters and animals, especially because I was always into animals and evolution. So, the whole Pokémon, different animals, and evolving “thing” really, you know, inspired me, and I loved…. I loved playing that game. Anyway, so, I’ve been playing that game recently, and getting a bit addicted to it, but it’s kind of good. I like it for a few reasons and I thought I’d go through them with you. Firstly, it’s kind of motivation for me to get out of the house more, because for those of you who don’t know, Pokémon Go is this game where you effectively use a GPS map of your surrounding location. So, wherever you live, whether it’s in Brazil, whether it’s in Paris in France, whether it’s in um… America, somewhere in the US. It doesn’t matter where, you know, if there’s a GPS map for it you’ll be able to play this game on your phone. So, it’s on your phone and you get a map of your surrounding area. I don’t know if it’s… probably a circumference of something like a kilometre or so that you can see on your screen, and all the streets and everything, and you walk around and based on where you go, different areas like parks or schools or cemeteries, there are different kinds of Pokémon for you to catch. And so, it’s very much like the old game except that you have to get out of the house to play it. So, you can’t do it from home. You can’t walk around using your phone, you know, you can’t walk the little guy on the phone around unless you’re walking. So, the GPS tracks your movement, which is another story that some people like or don’t like about it. But… so, I like it because of that. It’s incentive for me and I’m sure many other people to get out of the house. I haven’t been walking this much in a very long time. And at the same time as being able to walk and get out of the house it um… allows me to also listen to my podcasts um… for language learning while I’m walking around. So, at the same time as playing Pokémon I’m walking around and I’m… I’m listening to podcasts like Francais Authentique or Brazilian Podclast… ah Brazilian Podclass I want to say, um… in order to practice my French and Portuguese. So, I’m killing three birds with one stone, you could say in English. So, there’s that English saying, “To kill two birds with one stone”, to get two things down in a single effort, sort of thing, you know, doing one thing, one action gets two results. This way I get to walk, I get to practice my languages, and I get to play Pokémon. So, three things and one stone, even though one of those things, playing Pokémon, isn’t exactly productive. Also I kind of like it because I feel, I feel like it’s made outside, the outside world, a lot safer, you know, um… and I don’t know if many of you will have… who like this game and play this game, will have noticed or have thought about, but at least in Melbourne, where I’ve been playing it, now I notice that not just me, you know, I’m not the only one who goes out late at night to walk and play this game when no one else is around, or at least, I think no one else is around. Now when I go out at night there are actually quite a lot of random people that, you know, I don’t know, complete strangers you would say, walking around playing exactly the same game, and going to the same areas, you know, so there are different things like gyms and what are called poke-spots that are on the GPS map marked out, that you can go to in order to do certain things in the game. And it’s actually bringing people together to sort of the same locations. I mean… and for better or worse, we say in English, you know, it could… I’m… I’m sure I’ve heard stories about it being used inappropriately by people wanting to rob people, you know, you could potentially wait at these spots to… to rob people who come by in order to play this game. But at the same time I feel like there are a lot more friendly, nice, um… young… young people just walking around late at night, even during the day, you know. The park near where I study at the museum used to be pretty much completely empty during the day, you know. People would walk to and from work to go get lunch, you know, they’d walk through the park or they would just go for a quick walk at lunchtime, or you’d see them going home after work, or coming to work in the mornings, but now it’s just ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I go for a walk at lunchtime with one of my other friends, or actually a whole bunch of other friends at the museum who play this game. Man I feel like such a nerd, but… it’s just… don’t tell anyone guys. OK? Don’t tell anyone. You’ll ruin my reputation. But, so, I’ve been going out and playing this with my friends, but there are so many people, literally hundreds, I would say hundreds of people during the day in the park around where I study at the museum in the city. It’s just ridiculous. So, many students, people just talking, you meet complete strangers and you can just chat to them, obviously because you have something in common that you can talk to them about, the game, whereas, previously if you came across someone, if you meet someone who’s a complete stranger in the park, you don’t have anything to kind of connect on, and… and sort of jump past the fact that you’re both strangers, whereas, obviously if you have a dog or something and both of you have dogs then you can start talking. If both of you play Pokémon then you can start talking about that, but if you’re complete strangers normally, and there’s you know nothing to really comment on or talk about, it’s a little more awkward to start a conversation if you would even want to start a conversation with a complete stranger. Anyway, so they’re some of the reasons that I think this game is kind of cool. There’s been a little bit of hate. There’s been a little bit of hate from some people, you know, saying that people aren’t taking any notice of things like crossing the road and, you know, there’s people getting hit by cars and stuff like that, but to be honest I think phones have always sort of had that effect on people where it may’ve elevated it slightly more recently this game because it’s just gone absolutely viral, everyone seems to be playing it. There seems to be literally more people playing this game than not playing this game nowadays that I see out and about. But yeah, so, I don’t think there’s… that’s really a solid argument against it but yeah it is understandable at the same time. I do find myself having to look at my surroundings quite a bit and make sure I look up and you know don’t cross the road while look down at my phone. Anyway. So, that was one thing. I thought I would mention it and give a shout-out to any other players that are playing the game at the moment ‘cause it is a bit of a guilty interest of mine at the moment, and I’m probably playing it more than I should be. But at least not too I’m killing… killing four birds with one stone I could say, because I’m actually out here making a Walking With Pete episode for the podcast that I wouldn’t otherwise be making but for this game. Because I’m out here playing this game… and I’m watching a possum run right at me. There’s a brush-tailed possum running right across the path here towards me and running up a tree. So, yeah there are a lot of possums out in this park that I see at night as well. Anyway, yeah, so I’m glad I’m out here making this podcast for you guys. Um… I’ll leave it there, and I’ll chat to you soon. Hope you guys are doing well and yeah, don’t forget to leave a comment or say hello on Facebook if you want to chat. I’m trying to get a lot more… a lot more of a conversation sort of happening there so that we can, you know, get into discussions but I guess I need to come up with things that are more interesting to discuss. Anyway, chat to you soon guys. All the best!
For better or worse
- Whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing.
A complete stranger
- Someone who you don’t know.
To go viral
- To spread quickly and widely among people (often on the internet), e.g. like a virus.

AE 485: 1 Tip to Buy Cheap Books (in Australia)
What’s going on, guys?
So today, I was putting together a PDF download, and I’m trying to find a lot of different books that you can get to help you learn English, but also learn about Australian culture, among other things like documentaries, movies, anyway.
The basic idea here for this video is that I wanted to show you how to get cheap books in Australia. So, if you are a bit of a bookworm who likes to buy books online, this is the way that you can find the cheapest option for whatever book it is that you’re looking for. Anyway. Okay.
So, let’s check out the screen here. First thing’s first, I want you to type in Booko into Google, okay. You might need to make sure that Google is Google.com.au, but the website we’re looking for is Booko, BOOKO.com.au. Okay. So, you’ll see it open up here, and you can literally search any kind of book that you want to get, right.
So, one example that I was looking at was a famous book by an author called Tim Winton in Australia and that book is called ‘Cloudstreet’. So, we’ll do a search for that. You can see there’s a few different options here that have come up with Cloudstreet in them, but obviously the first one here is the one we’re looking for.
So, click on that, and then we’ll see that there’s a whole different bunch of editions, right? So, you can get paperback, you can get… what have you got here, ah, MP3 CD, you can get the Kindle edition, and the e-book, all these different options, right? So, you’ll obviously need to find the best option for you. The good thing is prices will be listed for ‘new’ down the side here and ‘used’ down the sign here as well. Okay. And when it was published.
So, if for example, we look at… let’s see if I can find… okay, Cloudstreet, here. Paperback English. Okay. Your standard paperback book. We’ll click on that and you will see, and this is the part that I really like about this Booko website, you will see all of these different stores online listed in order of cheapest, at the top here, to most expensive at the bottom. And the thing that I love about this, aside from obviously showing you the best option for you, from all the different websites online, whether it’s overseas websites, whether it’s in Australia, is that it also shows you delivery and whether or not there’s a fee, and it factors that fee in to the ultimate price. And on top of that, it shows you availability and then total price on the side. Right?
So, you can AbeBooks is selling Tim Winton’s Cloudstreet for only $14.10, 10 cents, and then it is a $1.31. But even with that delivery fee the total is still cheaper than the next best one, which is only $0.06 more from Angus and Robertson for $15.47.
So, this site is awesome. Okay. I really recommend using this site if you guys are looking for books. Once you found the book that you want, once you have found a really good price, sometimes too these prices are quite substantial. The top spot could be $5 or $10 cheaper than at the next point down.
So, you would click them on the website at the top there. It’ll send you directly to where on that website you can get this book. You would then just click add to basket and obviously, whichever website this is, you’ve got to fill out the information required, and then you can buy it.
So, just a short video today, guys, that I wanted to show you for anyone on here who loves buying books.
I might also quickly show you that you can find some pretty obscure things on here. Okay. So, I think, from memory, this website was the one that I got my Portuguese grammar book through. So, it’s not just common novels, right. You’re going to find a whole bunch of really obscure books. So, if you’re looking for things like English grammar. Maybe you will type in ‘English grammar book’ and see what comes up. What have we got here? Central Grammar in Use with Answers.
So, you’ll see a whole bunch of these things come up, English Grammar Workbooks for Dummies. That was actually written by my dad’s friend Geraldine Woods.
So, yeah. Anyway, great website site. I really recommend using this before you’re thinking about getting books, whether it’s from book stores in Australia that you walk into or other sites online, I would really recommend jumping on this website and doing a search just to compare those prices, because quite often you’ll save a little bit of money, especially, if you’re going to a book store in Australia, an actual bookstore, right, a physical bookstore. Quite often their prices will be a little bit above what you can get here and it gets delivered to your door, right, in the mail.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this video, guys. Hope it was helpful for you. And I would love to know from you what was the last book that you bought online? Tell me about it in a comment below and I’ll tell you soon. See ya!
