A bit of Monday fun with our English Language....
noses run but feet smell
quicksand works slowly
boxing rings are square
guinea pigs are neither from Guinea nor are pigs
there is no egg in eggplant
no ham in hamburger
and neither apple nor pine in pineapple
a slim chance and a fat chance can be the same
a wise man and a wise guy are opposites.....
hugs and love....koralee
And I thought French was hard to learn:) We must confuse Alot of people out there...
(I like your new pictures up Koralee! You are very gifted!)
Have a wonderful day.....(and I really do mean a "wonder-full day"! :)
Koralee: SO so clever! As a lover of words, this really made me SMILE! And think! The best two things for starting my day ~ thank you : )
What fun post today. Playing with words, so much fun. Every now and then I spend the days doing this: wlack and bhite or kugs and hisses. Hmm, in Dutch one gets the most wonderful new words.
Koralee, your shoes are shoebaloe! Gorgeous color and so so sweet.
Hope you will enjoy a lot of sunshine too today, my friend. xx
GOOD MORNING KORALEE,
THEY ARE SO CUTE, I LOVE THE FIRST ONE, NOSES RUN BUT FEET SMELL. HAVE A GREAT DAY WITH LOTS OF SUNSHINE. RIZZI
very clever and I have never thought of any of those words from that perspective before. Love it,Kathysue
Fun! I'm going to send this one to my daughter today - she is also a logophile.
Thanks for the smile.
A nice giggle to start Monday morning off waiting for my cup coffee!
Have a great day Koralee!
Maybe we'll see each other at the market in Salt Spring this summer?!
Lovely to start monday on a funny note like this - you're so creative that way, that's why i always LOVE visiting you!
Good Morning Sweet One,
This is so very cute! Love your new header...now I have to go back and see how long it took me to notice it...see ya tomorrow...Rosie
Hi Koralee, what a darling post today! I love your new header ... and I LoVe those shoes! (And I want that sugar cookie on the teacup too!!!)
That's a good laugh for a Monday morning! Thanks!
Hope you have an awesome week.
Feet smell but DON't smell feet.
Well, mine don't smell :) I'm a lady :)
Dute post! Fun to read Koralee...as always of course!!!
how cute...love it!
It's always fun !! to read your post............
I found .....geen lach zonder glim .....also nice !!
But the translator says this : do not laugh without smiling!............so in the dutch sound it better !! sorry.............happy evening my darling.........hugs from me..........
This is a fun way to start the week! I keep my French honey's head spinning with all my American sayings which he then tries to use...
Happy week to you Koralee!
That is so funny! I love this post to start the week. Thanks, darling!
Oh very good, our language is very confusing. In Ireland people say some funny phrases too like a holy terror, hows it going?, Look at your one (meaning look at that woman)and what's the craic..
All things nice...
I"m catching up today! I LOVE Your calico blue teapot, and your gorgeous blue bowls! And you are right, those phrases and names don't really make a whole lot of sense do they? :-) Can you imagine how hard it must be for an english language learner to make sense of this language?
Very clever, Koralee!
These are the things we don´t think of taht often...
Have a nice day, my sweet friend.
Oh the english language, lol.Understandably understandible,LOL.
Yes,it's a funny old language is English!
I love your examples.
What a fun way to start Monday...thanks for the laugh :-)
Oh this post is so much fun!
I love our language! We have the most amazing twists and turns... It's actually a difficult one to learn for foreigners!
*Your shoes are so pretty*
Do you find that students always notice new shoes?... isn't that funny!
Thank you so much for your dear, sweet comments ~ I always look forward to them*
Have a wonderful week dear ♥
Haha, that is really funny to me as a swede! We have strange expressions like that in swedish too, that really makes no sense but still are used - very confusing for people who move to Sweden from other countries. :-)
Thanks for posting it, made me smile!
Oh I do love WORDS! Such a fun post, Koralee!
And remember, A dog not only has a fur coat but also pants. hehe :)
These are so true and so funny! I thing there should be something there about a wise woman too! Come say hi :D
Oh this is so cool...do you know that next year, I will be teaching English language arts as well as my regular French instruction of social studies and science!!! I am excited to teach English!
Fun post as always sweet Koralee! Anita
You are making me hungry for JUMBO SHRIMP :)
I always heard that if your nose runs and your feet smell you are built backwards... :)
So fun my Missy Koralee!! I never realized that we were such complicated people. I always thought English would be the simplest to learn... now I know different:) Have a perfect week my friend!!!
darling and clever as always... hope you are well sweet friend...xx pam
Nice new header Koralee!
Fun post! And those shoes are soo cute!
What a sweet new header and lovely post, as usual.
This was fun and brought a smile to my face.
Have a beautiful week, dear friend.
That was fun and clever and thanks for being so lovely :-) xo
I 'm not sure to understand everything but I'm gonna try again !Thanks for this lesson!
Hello! what a cute post! Have a wonderful day! Alexandra
How fun! My daughter would love this post...right up her alley! Are you excited to be winding down the school year??!!
Happy Tuesday Koralee!!
I'm so behind on my blogging but here I am and I always know where to go when I need a smile!
A fun post..love it.
Koralee...this was thoroughly entertaining!
well, i know four languages..and of all of them, the english one is cracked! lol
i prefer romantic languages...italian, spanish and french....but even english, when spoken properly - like in a Jane Austen novel.....can be sufficiently romantic! right!
creative carmelina was here!!!!!
and why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?
