random word of the day: TO PUT ON ONE'S BIG GIRL PANTIES

random word of the day: TO PUT ON ONE'S BIG GIRL PANTIES – wziąć się w garść, przestać się mazgaić (to pull yourself together, to stop overreacting and act like an adult)

(1) Lauren needs to put on her big girl panties and find her inner warrior. She is pathetic.

(2) You cried about big stuff like cancer and you cried about little stuff like a favorite show being a rerun.  You cried and cried and today, you're done.  Put on your big girl panties, go enjoy this perfect weather, and quit your sniveling.

(3) – Dad, I don’t want to go to school today because I have the hiccups.
Buddy, I don’t want to go to work today either…It’s dreary and it’s raining. (Not to mention the fact that it’s Monday).  It would be a terrific day to stay in bed!  But just like mommy says, “Sometimes we’ve got to put on our big girl panties and deal!”
– Dad, you know I don’t wear panties!”

(4) This guy needs to put his big girl panties on and suck it up... If I had his money, fame, etc. Holy shit! The world is your playground!
