By now, everybody is probably waiting for me to announce the new challenge, right?
All good things come to he who waits ... ;-)
Terri asked me to take a breather, and Melli is travelling this week, so I decided to wait one more week. But starting next week, I would love to get the new idioms challenge started.
The idea is to pick an idiom or an expression, ( slang might be interesting too) a saying, a proverb, a phrase ... and document it with a picture. After all, a picture paints a thousand words right? I'm really looking forward to see what we'll come up with.
As for the rules? I would like us to cover two letters a week, so I suggest we'll start next week and do A and B? Just be creative, that's all I'm asking.
As a matter of fact, I happened to find a couple of interesting thoughts on this subject this morning ...
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity. ~George Smith Patton, War as I Knew It, 1947
Slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands and goes to work. ~Carl Sandburg, New York Times, 13 February 1959
It's a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water. ~Franklin P. Jones
So there, if there are any more questions, just put them in a comment and I'll do an update on this post, okay?
Oh and another thing. Any suggestions for a name or a title for this challenge?
In the mean time, I can't wait for you to jump on the bandwagon, and get this show on the road!
UPDATE: Terri asked about the letters of the alphabet. We'll use two each week, so next week, the idioms are supposed to start with A and B, you know like, " apple pie order", an apple a day ...
