Another week of Idioms. Jientje is hosting this fun 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 …
This week, the letters are W & X.
W= When Pigs Have Wings
Also often said as: When pigs fly
I wonder if that will be the end of this photo challenge, or if we'll start over again with A & B the following week. Most letters had lots of different idioms one could use, there were only a few at the end that would have to be used over again with some other kind of picture. I suspect there will be a lot of "X marks the spot" posts today, lol. It's the only X idiom I found, so will be interesting to see if anyone found other idioms, and how many different ways was "X marks the spot" demonstrated in photos.
As for the pig: I found this little cast iron pig in an antique shop on June 11 and just couldn't pass it up. There were 2 others that were larger, and more money. I had enough on me to buy the little one and so wished I could justify going back for the 2 bigger ones. I took photos of it on my truck before I even got in, just had to capture the moment :o) I've been saving 'him' just for this letter.
