Another powerful writer's tool: idioms--where a word or phrase takes on a meaning beyond the technical definition of its parts.

Some of my faves: No rest for the wicked, lost your marbles, get on my last nerve, brevity is the soul of wit

The real challenge was getting a useable image of this brand. The one in my house was too tiny for the camera to snap a clear picture.

Yesterday's famous brand: Hershey's

  4. awesome photo! Idioms are so much fun - and so confusing for those folks who don't have English as their first language! :)

  5. I like "hold your pants on." I say it to my dog all the time. No clue on the product. That's a tough one!

  6. It looks like Intel.

    I enjoy idioms. My students think they're fun when we discuss them and they're asked to use them in their own sentences.

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)

Note: During the A to Z challenge, I may not be able to return all comments in a timely fashion, but I will do my best.
