A Thousand Words In Idioms: G and H

Wednesday, May 20, 2009
It is time again for A Thousand Words In Idioms. These are the words of Jientje, the host at Heaven is in Belgium:

As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language. Now, because "a picture paints a thousand words", I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, (even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll cover two letters of the alphabet, okay? The very first edition is here if you need some inspiration.

I got my idioms from the A-Z list of free English idioms. If you know another site, please let me know. Thank you :).

G is for "Grin from ear to ear"

If somebody is grinning from ear to ear, they look very satisfied and happy. Well, in this case my son is grinning from ear to ear at his first swimming lesson at the big pool.

G and H is for "Hand in glove"

Two or more people who are in collusion, or work in close association, are said to be hand in glove. "After the match, it was discovered that he was hand in glove with the referee."

A boy is not going to have any problems learning swimming from the happy grin on his face without fear.

I've got numerous students that scream when it's time to advance to the deep side of the pool :P
