" A Thousand Words In Idioms" G & H

" A Thousand Words In Idioms"

Jientje has started a wonderful photo challenge: "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 …

G & H

If you would like, see: A - F.

Each meaning has a link to the page where I got it from, and where they post about the origins of the saying/idioms.

Get your goat:
Meaning: Make you annoyed or angry.

I couldn't make up my mind, so you get a bonus H today.

Straight from the horse's mouth:
Meaning: From the highest authority.

A dark horse:
Meaning: Someone who emerges to prominence; being previously little known.
