Idiom or Idiot... you decide!

I have always liked playing with words! Maybe that is why I studied linguistics, a couple of foreign languages, and speech and language disorders.

idiom
Noun
1. a group of words which, when used together, have a different meaning from the one suggested by the individual words, eg it was raining cats and dogs

This book which I borrowed through interlibrary loan from our public library....
with all its wonderful stories...

and photos...

is the 'apple of my eye'.

(We went apple picking yesterday).


You know what 'gets my goat'?!"

(Don't get pushy!!!)


That replacement metal bobbin cases cost $75!!!!!!!


but 'it goes without saying' , it is a necessity!!!!

Yup.... Bernie is back again!!!

and I won't even have to 'lift a finger'!!!!
'cuz the knee lift is working again (one of the greatest sewing machine inventions of all times!!!)

I think if I have to stay in and read this tome all weekend....

I might end up with 'cabin fever'!
(The latest edition to my series of houses on linen. This is where I want to live some day!)

And, ya know what?! I don't 'give a hoot'!
Life is short, eat dessert first!!!!

(My first apple pie- dutch apple- of the season) I'll worry about the calories later!
Have you had enough of me yet?!!!!
