Mary Wins for Best All Around Links–Idioms Rule!

Hands down Mary is the winner of the best, most interesting links. I mean it. Today or maybe yesterday she sent the link below which is all about foreign language idioms. These words are awesome. It will be a challenge but I will find a way to work some or maybe one of these words into a conversation. The problem, of course, is my memory and pitiful pronunciation–with the exception, I believe is German. I can sound out some fine German. I learned to read English phonetically and by golly, that’s the Krals’ Rule of Speaking. I am sure there are people still wondering about my language skills.

    These expressions are excellent, Susan, but I will have a hard time working them into my conversations since I can’t pronounce most of them!!!!!
