Jientje, our mistress of fun, has cooked up a wonderful photo challenge, and this is what she has to say about it:
When I was a kid, I was always fascinated by the colourful language my grandmother used. She had such a way with words, she had her own funny ways to describe things and that memory still makes me smile. As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language.
Now, because a picture paints a thousand words, I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to pick an idiom, or a saying, ( even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we’ll cover two letters of the alphabet, okay?
If “language is the dress of thoughts” ( Johnson), then idioms must the wardrobe …
And so we continue ….
Week Five: I & J
If It Walks Like a Duck, and Talks Like a Duck, it Must Be a Duck!
This simply means, don’t go trying to convince me that he/she/you/it,
is something it’s obviously not.
Just What the Doctor Ordered.
This is most often said when one is handed something that exactly fits his/her
wants or needs at that moment.
