idiom: to have a ball

I don’t have much time to write my blog today, so I’ll write a short but useful one. I’m going to Disney Sea with friends today, and it reminded me of today’s expression. It’s to “have a ball”. This is used when we want to say we have a lot of fun when doing something. For example:

I went to Disneyland with my family yesterday, and we had a ball!

I’m sure you’ll have a ball when you go to Mexico! It’s a really fun place!

My son is having a ball at kindergarten! He can’t wait to get there every morning!

So we use this expression in positive sentences, but we DON’T use it in questions or in negative sentences.

I hope everyone will have a ball during the holiday!
