    Hi everybody!

    I have read an expression belonging to a book. The context is in a hairdresser place and one of the girls working there say as follow:
    "This morning we are gonna be as busy as a a one-armed paper hanger."

    How could we say this expression in Spanish? Maybe "tan ocupadas como la agenda de un ministro"?

    Thanks! :)

    Maybe: tan ocupados como un castor.

    Azry, yo usaría cualquier frase divertida que se use en tu zona para hablar de alguien muy ocupado. Más liado que la pata de un romano es una frecuente por aquí.

    Un saludo
