A Thousand Words in Idioms (4)

"A Thousand Words in Idioms"

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 photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, (even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture.




If "language is the dress of thoughts" ( Johnson), then idioms must the wardrobe


From now on everybody can join in. No need to follow the alphabet, just pick two idioms and illustrate them with your pictures. Grab that camera or look in your archives. Just be creative, that's all I'm asking!
And don't forget to have fun and visit one another, okay?


So here we go ...

A piece of cake.

It means: A task that can be accomplished very easily.

A taste of your own medicine.


It means: When you are mistreated the same way you mistreat others.

I'd prefer to taste a piece of cake than to have to swallow all that medicine, but it does make a very colorful picture!! Well done Liz, thanks for playing!

I'm with Jientje -- that piece of cake is much more inviting! But the pills are sometimes more necessary. At any rate, great illustrations!

I know a guy who lives by vitamins and pills. I reckon they do more harm than good longterm.
