Born out of boredom...and my usual musings...I'm going to do a month (or so) of Thursday's Words. (Are those heads I hear? Dropping on keyboards? Still with me?) And, no, not Wednesday's Words. I am nothing if not contrary.
col·lo·qui·al·ism (k-lkw--lzm) -- I love that! k-lkw-lzm!
1. Colloquial style or quality.
2. A colloquial expression.
Here's my example - "She's a whistler!" My neighbor uses this on a regular basis and I LOVE it. It could mean anything - other than, of course, someone who whistles. That would be too blase. What examples can you come up with?
p.s. Have you noticed that I never have a Wordless Wednesday? That's because I am not capable of being quiet. If I had just pictures, there would be lengthy, War and Peace captions. Yak, yak, yak.
