    In this game, one will read the "Saying or Idiom", and write a few words or a sentence as to what it means, then write a "Saying or Idiom" for the next person to figure out its meaning.

    A "Saying" is self explanatory, and an "Idiom" is basically a saying whose meanings can't be understood from the individual words in them. Examples are as follows:

    Saying-Drop In The Bucket, which means, an amount that doesn't matter.

    Idiom-Greek To Me, which means, something too difficult to understand.


    Soooo.....One will "READ" the "Saying" or "Idiom", write a simple sentence, explaining what the saying or idiom "MEANS", then "LEAVE" a saying or idiom for the next person.


    The Game should prove to be very interesting, especially when the sayings and idioms are from such a "Diverse Community". We may learn something new also. OK, then I will start.

    All that glitters is not gold...Someone may portray that they live a glamorous life, however, they are not, and may be pretentious at best.

    Pulling the wool over ones eyes means that someone or something is tricking us into believing that all is peachy, when in reality, it is not!

    When one door closes another one opens means that when one believes they have exhausted all possibilities and there is no hope....God opens another door of new possibilities, and hope. May not be all that you want, but nevertheless, is there, if you coose to open it, and walk through.
