So no reason, except total randomness, I choose 'Blue'.
Then I found a whole host of idioms, sayings and quotes that contain the word blue. Some I use regularly and some I'd never heard of. Which ones do you use?
a blue-eyed boy
a bolt from the blue
between the devil and the deep blue sea
black and blue
blue in the face
bolt from the blue
into the wide blue yonder
(Incidently I was playing around with this phrase when I was thinking about the title of my blog- until I decided on Graham's Landing instead!)
like a bolt from the blue
like blue blazes
once in a blue moon
out of a clear blue sky
out of the blue
scream blue murder
talk until one is blue in the face
the boys in blue
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.
So there you are- 10 Blue Things for a Tuesday :)
