English term or phrase:say boo to a goose
Maise is such a shy little girl; she never puts her hand up. She can't say boo to a goose.
Thx za wszystkie podpowiedzi. Coz wybralem te wlasnie odpowiedz bo po pierwsze: lepiej mi pasuje do kontextu, po drugie: 'byc potulnym jak baranek' to jest: 'be gentle as a lamb'. Wydaje mi sie ze rowniez 'siedzi cicho jak mysz pod miotłą' jest calkiem niezle. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
