Like an Egg between two Millstones

One of my favourite sayings is -
"Sun uvyo sta thio litharia" - "like an egg between two millstones".

This was used in the context
"How are you today"?
"I am not feeling too well!"
(In Australia we might say "I feel a bit crook!" - or a "bit off-colour.")

Greek being such a visual language paints the picture so much better - I feel like an egg would feel - if it were caught between two millstones!"

"Sun uvyo sta thio litharia".
