Mom’s idioms – My mother was the queen of idioms. In today’s sweltering weather she would have said “it’s a scorcher!” Once in a blue moon we get the kind of weather we are having this weekend. The forecasters say it will break tomorrow but you can take that with a grain of salt!
Sales, sales, sales – This past week was the big Amazon Prime sale. I was surprised to see that other retailers jumped on that wagon. There were many “prime” sales all over. It’s a lot like black Friday. I keep seeing black Friday sales and we all know that Thanksgiving is months away. It’s the retailers pulling the wool over your eyes.
Speaking of sales – I haven’t seen back to school ads. Yet. Then again I haven’t read today’s paper. Doesn’t look like they are on the ball this summer!
Sweat stinks – When it’s hot I go through clothes. I’m not a “sweater” but these days, don’t stand downwind. You heard that straight from the horse’s mouth.
Party on – We are gearing up for the reunion here. Food, check. Drinks, check. People coming, check. Weather, high anxiety. That looks like the whole nine yards!
So how was your week?
Author’s note: Sorry about all the idioms but I was missing my Mom today so you bear the pain! Did you find them all?
