Hit The Sack
In the old days, a pillow was made with a sack (a large back) stuffed with something soft, like straw. So the idiom hit the sack means to go to bed.
- I hit the sack at around ten o’clock last night.
- Jane has small children, so she hits the sack early.
- My mom hit the sack at 8:00pm.
How about you? What time do you usually hit the sack?
