Play It by Ear: improvise1 as one goes along

Stick Out One's Neck: take a risk

-How come they're asking me to act as their guide through the jungle?

-You've been studying for a long time.  Why don't you take a break? Come on! Let's go!  Forget studying for a while!

-Look! Get off my back!  I can't go anywhere!

-OK. I'll stop bothering you only if you promise to let me know the minute you're finished.

 

Pull Someone's Leg: fool someone

-Hey, Al.  I was invited to be a judge for the Miss America Beauty Pageant4!

-Oh, really?  Come on, you're pulling my leg!

-Well, you've told me foolish stories before.

-I can assure5 you that this one is for real.
