What is an idiom?

An idiom is a type of figure of speech.  Instead of saying exactly what he or she means, the speaker uses a common expression.  

Instead of saying, "I want everyone to look at me," a teacher might say, "I want all eyes on me."  Instead of saying, "I hope that everything goes well," a speaker might say, "I'm keeping my fingers crossed."  Instead of saying, "I don't want to do something a new way because the standard way works fine," the speaker might say, "I don't want to reinvent the wheel."

If someone were to accuse me using a lot of idioms in my everyday speech, I would have to say, "Guilty as charged."
