Hi homies ,
I have a hasty question ,
Is there any idiom analogous to " Lap of luxury " ?
I think I've heard something like "he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth" and rolling in it (it means having large amounts of something, usually money). For example: Mary's new husband is rolling in it. (he's very rich)
Hope it helps.
There are a great many similar idioms. To be in the lap of luxury is to enjoy great comfort, usually as a result of having wealth, though perhaps as a result of another person's hospitality.
La Andaluza's suggestions refer to being wealthy. Some others, that more directly refer to comfort:
Happy as a pig in shit. (Enjoying oneself in a way analogous to a pig's notion—or a person's notion of a pig's notion—of absolute comfort.
Living high on the hog.
Thnaks LA_Andaluza and cuchuflete for your helps ,
it's just a typo
To add another one, "living large" is a more contemporary expression for living a life of luxury and extravagance.
Hi James , thanks for dropping in , it's useful
