To throw cold water on something

To throw cold water on something和中文里说的“泼冷水”意思完全一样。下面的例子是一个人在说他办公室里发生的事:

例句-3:"Everybody else in the office thought my idea was great, but the boss threw cold water on it."



例句-4:"I've been planning to go to medical school but my dad threw cold water on this idea the other day when he told me he wasn't sure he had the money to pay my tuition for so long."
