To have something up your sleeve


To have something up your sleeve means you still have a trick or secret left which you can later use in your advantage. I am aware of the fact that this is not a very complicated expression. It is probably just my overactive imagination that associates the word ‘trick’ with magic. And when I hear the word ‘magic’, my brain immediately screams: HARRY POTTER!!! So no surprise that this is actually one of my favorite expressions in English.
