A Mile a Minute

Welcome to English in a minute!A mile is a unit of measurement equal to about 1.6 kilometers.And a minute is equal to 60 seconds.A mile a minute.I’ve been thinking about your birthday..Uh-oh.What have you been thinking,Anna? A party.A big party with 10 kinds of pizza.And balloons.Maybe a clown,and definitely chickens all over…Slow down,Anna!Your mind’s going a mile a minute!How about we start this party idea with something small,like a cake.The expression a mile a minute means that something happens very quickly.We started using the phrase in the mid 1900s when 60 miles per hour,or a mile a minute was considered a very fast speed.And that’s English in a minute!
