"A Thousand Words in Idioms"
If "language is the dress of thoughts" ( Johnson), then idioms must the wardrobe
And don't forget to have fun and visit one another, okay?
So here we go ...
The farm edition ....
I have two pictures for one idiom today, because there is a story attached to this one.
"Were you born in a barn?"
If someone asks you this, it means that you forgot to close the door when you came in.
We were exploring the countryside of Normandy last year in May when we came across this barn. It had a sign, "gîte à louer", (room to let) which I found rather funny. So I got out of the car to make a series of pictures of this very photogenic cow and her shaggy lodgings. I had taken pictures from all angles, but only after a while I discovered the calf she was so cleverly hiding!
"Put lipstick on a pig"
If people put lipstick on a pig, they make superficial or cosmetic changes, hoping that it will make the product more attractive.
This sow was feeding her little piggies, and she had the most happy face I'd ever seen. No need to put lipstick on her to make her look good!!
Don't forget to sign the Mr Linky if you're playing? Can't wait to see what you'll come up with this week!
