Go Super to Listen Go Super!

The R & B singer Robin Thicke blows his fans away with his music. But his wife blows him away just by being herself.

When the wind is very strong, it can carry things off, or blow them away. For example, on a windy day, you might have to worry about your hat blowing away. But the expression blow away also has another meaning. If something blows a person away, it probably doesn’t carry him off. It impresses or amazes him. Robin’s wife amazes him with how amazing she is!

There are many other expressions that use the verb blow. When something blows over, it becomes less strong or goes away, as in, “Her anger blew over after a couple days.” And to blow through means to pass through or complete something very quickly, as in, “I blew through the novel I was reading in three days.”

Robin is blown away by how loving and genuine his wife is. What qualities blow you away in a person? Who in your life blows you away?
