It’s Not The Heat….It’s An Idiom
It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity. How many times have you heard that in the past 5 days. It might be an ‘old person’s’ saying. But it’s an idiom. I didn’t say idiot. Idiom. Let’s cut to the chase, Idioms are a piece of cake Did you see what I just did? I’ve heard people say
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but I’d have to look it up to know the meaning. I know I can’t see the forest for the trees. I need to think outside the box. Speaking of thinking, I think the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. And you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Am I starting to get your goat? Other animal idioms. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. And what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. And look at the cover photo, and you'll see a 'Cash Cow'. Another idiom.
Idioms are expressions whose meanings are figurative and different from the literal meanings of the words within them. For example, the idiom “It costs an arm and a leg” means that something is very expensive. Are you with me, or am I barking up the wrong tree? Anyway my point was to learn something, and I’ve made my bed, now I’ll lie in it.
To summarize, here’s to less humidity. It’s been so sticky. Looking forward to some relief, because, all together now, it’s not the heat it’s the humidity.
