Here we are once again with Trifextra..the folk that get our little brains motivated.
This weekend they are asking for exactly 33 words including an idiom somewhere within. Examples of idioms include – add fuel to the fire or wear your heart on your sleeve.
“You OK Cobber?”
“Yeah, somefin’ includin’ an idiom”.
” Stone the bloody crows, Des, think I got a winner this time”.
“Don’t count your chickens before they hatch mate“.
ha! (: Very cute.
Funny .. nice use of Idiom.
Thanks Sam 🙂
Like it. 😉
Thanks BR 🙂
Aussie idioms? or are you English? No matter, I like it.
I am an Aussie the stone the bloody crows is said a bit over here though – Though it is an old English expression. ie Shock, surprise, Awe – Stone the crows where did you come from?
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch – explanation is not to depend/rely on something until you actually posses it, or it has come to fruition.
Glad you like it and thanks for reading Lacey.
Love the dialect. Hadn’t heard the crow idiom before, but it’s very apt. Well done.
Thanks LD, funny, what we hear over and take as common place is not known elsewhere – the beauty of the challenges, helps us know each other a little more. Thanks for reading 🙂
Really cute 😀
Ta munchkin 🙂 x
Ta sunshine 🙂 x
The crow one was new to me- I like it. The only bad thing was that my mind added an Aussie accent, and it does it very poorly 🙂
I am glad Janna 🙂 That’s ok my American accent is pretty lousy too! x
Haha! God I felt like I was down the local pub! LMAO hugs xxxxxxx
Bewdy luv! – 🙂 xxxx
Great post! 🙂
Hugs and thank you Lyn 🙂 xx
LOL! Very cute indeed! 😀
Ta chookas…oops have you hatched? 😉 xx
stone the bloody crows – new one on me – thanks!
my mother was always telling me not to count my chickens. 🙂
Yay another who has heard of that one..stone the bloody crows yes I feel more of aussie idiom more than anything 🙂 xx
Ohh….does your Mr. speak that way too?
I do not think the Irish has any idioms….we are quiet. We speak plainly and without colour. Nods nods … we are shy.
Crickey NO!!!! lol
The true blue Aussie farmers and those in the country are inclined to speak more like this.
Quiet? Plain? Without colour? SHY???!!!
You forget my son in law is Irish….. nod nods 😉
Those chicks are so cute though, so convincing…;) Great dialog-and dialect too. I think this one’s a winner!
Valerie – how kind but alas probably no…never mind I do it for the fun of writing and reading others – Thank you! 🙂
Love it… as always, you nailed it!
Aww Bo too kind as usual – thanks hun 🙂 x
This is good, but henceforth I think I’ll be chicking stones and crowing the bloody count.
LOL Jazz really? awkward 🙂 Thanks for visiting and commenting – appreciated!
You caught how I felt. You did a great job. My creative juices just did not flow with this one.
Thanks Ann, I just pictured the Aussie men folk and getting the outback feel in their dialect. The fact that probably neither of them would have known what an idiom was it more realistic I think 😉 Appreciate you reading.
We Americans are big into counting (or not) our chicks before they hatch, but the crows are new to me, too! Thanks for linking up.
Not a problem TW – thanks for the prompt 🙂
Love it! Lots of character in this piece – and great choice of idioms!
Ah yes Suz us Aussies are characters in our own right – glad you loved 🙂 Thank you.
Haha! Rather Alf Stewart-ish, huh? Nicely done.
Jess – OMG 2 things that hadn’t dawned on me 1. You’re an Aussie? 2. You’re a female?
Guess lovethebadguy threw me…no hang on definitely threw me. Thank you 🙂
Haha, yup on both accounts. 😉
When I first started blogging, I never mentioned my name or my gender, so for a while there it was a bit of a mystery. Even now, my blog name does throw people off sometimes, so it’s understandable!
Love stone the crows. All crows do in the States is fly straight. Love dialog.
Thanks Kymm glad you enjoyed. 🙂 Thanks for reading.
Jess where abouts are you then? Thought it odd you picked up on Alf 😉 x
Ha!ha!Loved the interaction between the two-a cool way to weave in the idioms:-)
Thank you lovely 🙂 x
Taken from a real conversation at the bar surely, in which you were suspiciously a participant! Teasing!
Hic – hell no not I 😉 Thanks for reading Pirate.
