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. Β Examples of idioms include – add fuel to the fire or wear your heart on your sleeve.

“You OK Cobber?”

“Yeah, somefin’ includin’ an idiom”.

“A what?”

Stone the bloody crows, Des, think I got a winner this time”.

    • 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.

    • 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 πŸ˜‰ Appreciate you reading.

      • Haha, yup on both accounts. πŸ˜‰
        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!
