Idioms and Adjective Differences
to be in for a treat: to receive or experience something that is unexpected, often in a pleasant way
to bear in mind: to keep something in your thoughts; to remember something
dirty: not clean or unsanitary
messy: not tidy or organized
Don’t confuse the words dirty and messy as they are very different! “Dirty” is quite negative and can be used to say that something is unsanitary (not healthy) or disgusting. This can be full of germs, dirt, etc.. However, “messy” refers to how organized a person or place is. It can be synonymous with “unorganized” or “untidy” and just look careless.
