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 …
I'm playing catch up this week, so will be doing I & J from last week plus this week's K & L.
Each meaning has a link to the page where I got it from, and where they post about the origins of the saying/idioms.
Warning: You may want to consider an appetite suppressant before you read further... if you want to look like you eat like a bird, lol. A large salad would work.
I'll be there with bells on:
Meaning: Eager; ready to participate.
Meaning: That which is deserved. A reward for what has been done - good or bad.
Kick the bucket:
Meaning: To die.
A little bird told me:
Meaning: I was told by a private or secret source.
