Posted in Bonkers Away, Idioms


Hi Everyone!

Have you ever said the following?

  • When pigs fly,
  • Watch out for that hot potato,
  • Once in a blue moon,
  • Raining cats and dogs,
  • A bed of roses,
  • Miss the boat,

Apple of eye,

  • Zip your lip,
  • Devil’s advocate,

Now do you know what they mean?

Easy option,
Raining very heavily,
Something that will never happen or is impossible,
Very rarely,
Miss the chance,
Someone very precious or dear,
Stop talking,
One who presents a counter agrument,
Controversial issue or situtation that can be awkward or unpleasant to deal with,
Something easy to do.

Have a great day! Hope

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on Thank you for stopping by!
