Section Section Two: The Body Has Many Uses
Idiom Pay Through the Nose
Meaning pay too high a price
Example At last Mr. Smith came upon the rare stamp he had been seeking at an auction. Since many other stamp collectors would also be bidding for it, he realized that he would have to pay through the nose in order to have it. After considering the increasing value of the stamp, he decided that he would not mind paying such a high price for something so rare.
