strike with the beak
"a batch of letters"
"a deal of trouble"
"a lot of money"
"he made a mint on the stock market"
"see the rest of the winners in our huge passel of photos"
"it must have cost plenty"
"a slew of journalists"
"a wad of money"
"The anorexic girl just picks at her food"
"She nags her husband all day long"
Far too busy to give her more than an absent-minded peck on the cheek.
出自： S. Hastings
Never peck the hand that throws you the crumbs.
The cock pecked at the chickens.
He pecked listlessly at his breakfast of egg and bacon.
