Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Have you ever heard the story of someone who found something really special? Maybe it was a treasure box full of gold coins. Perhaps it was beautiful pearls or jewelry. For some reason, this person wanted to keep his treasure safe, so he dug a hole in the ground. Because he liked the treasure so much, he put these special items in the ground and covered them with dirt.

Whenever we use the expression dig it, we mean that somebody likes or enjoys a person, place, thing, or activity. It’s not clear that dig it comes from digging a hole for buried treasure. However, if you are digging a hole to hide something, you definitely dig it!

Actor Robert Downey, Jr. thinks that movie-goers will dig his new film. He likes how another actor is playing one of the characters in the movie, and he thinks that fans will dig it, too.

When you dig something, do you tell everyone about it or hide it? What do you dig right now?

Sometimes we dig holes inside of us and we bury our some thoughts,feelings,hopes,dreams,memories,relations there..we dont want that others know them,we are afraid that they can be stolen by others,we keep them as our secrets or our treasures.


we dig too much things in life ,we share some of them ,we hide some of them and it depends on how much we love them or afraid from them.

I don’t know if we can use that verb  ”dig it ” when we want to hide something wrong we did on the way other people will be never  able to know. I believe the result will be the same when we dig something very good or precious.Who will help me,please? Thanks in advance. greetings from Italy. Michele
