Like an Angel Peeing on My Tongue

 

It sounds gross, I know, but as Astrid says, anything "angel" is GOOD.

(the market square in Nuremburg, Germany, in March)

 

That's what my post is about at Vision and Verb today:  idioms.

Cripes, Ginnie!

Do angels pee?
Ginnie Hart: Well, the Dutch sure do think so, Ray!
Now I am left with a mental image I won't be able to shake...
Ginnie Hart: I know exactly what you mean, Larry! smile
i like the selective colouring here. what is it in these bottles? couldn't quite make out the labels. nice post Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. I don't know exactly what they are but I think dessert liquors?
Lovely arrangement, actually look quite elegant. Well captured Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, John. I LOVUE bottles like these. smile

Where angels feel to tread, you have gone, Ginnie! Will read your V and V post later - am off shortly by train to the Welsh Valleys
Ginnie Hart: It still takes me by surprise, Lisl, every time I hear it. grin Thanks.

We are in Germany, but the scene with the bottles I've never seen looks strange to me - a refined treatment again! - later I'll read your V&V tribute! Een goede week toegewenst, it is a bit cooler today!
Ginnie Hart: I don't know what they are, Philine...maybe dessert liquors? But they did catch my eye. Hartstikke bedankt.

Wonderful capture and I love the selective colouring.
Definite angels pee on your tongue if/when you drink this smile
@Ray, as kids, we always would say when it started to rain... 'the angels pee again...'
Ginnie Hart: So, the angels pee whenever they get the chance, I see. grin I love it...but I do stop and take notice every time I hear it. Bedankt, MLM

I think that is a wonderful phrase Ginnie, I shall try to use it myself
Ginnie Hart: It still stops me in my tracks every time I hear it, Chris. Someone at our Rummikub just said it the other day while we were eating special petit-fours. smile

All this seems very tasty and the light is very beautiful on bottles
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Marie. Merci.
Better than tasting like the cat equivalent Ginnie grin
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Bill. grin

Well, I'll try anything once Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Chad. grin
With an Angel peeing that must mean its raining then.And we are getting s some rain at the moment.
Ginnie Hart: That's ONE meaning, Mick. The other has to do with something really tasting good...which I still don't get, to be honest! smile

Well I've never heard that expression before! I like the full bottles and the empty and those neither full nor empty! I'll have to come back to V & V post.. I really ought to get on with important Gov work sad
Ginnie Hart: I had never heard the expression till coming to Dutchland, Alan. I still shake my head over it. HA! Thanks.
I like the colour arrangement, Ginnie. I've never associated angels with drink before.
Ginnie Hart: Drink or food, Pauline...anything that has taste. I know. Who would have even thought angels could pee?? grin (Leave it to the Dutch to think up those things!)
Mmmm - the simile is striking!
Ginnie Hart: It does make you stop in your tracks, Tom! smile
OMG I didn't know you had such fetish! grin He he...
This is probably the funniest Freudian slip I've heard. :p
Ginnie Hart: HA! Od course YOU'D enjoy it, LC. grin

A very pleasing photo, Boots. Now I'm off to be reminded what this idiom means. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, sister...on both counts. smile
That's one I'd never heard. Good treatment making a fine image.
Ginnie Hart: It was a new one for me, too, Mary, and is still one I don't "get." smile

Of een engeltje 't op mijn tong deed. The first time I heard the expression, I was filled with understanding the message relevant to the situation.

Great picture and a lot of tasting going on.
Ginnie Hart: I still laugh every time I hear it, Louis. smile Lots of tasting, indeed.

I hope you managed a few samples Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, actually, no, Frances. I was just busy taking the pictures. smile
Very nice selective colour,Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Frank.
Superb example of selective colouring!

There must be an idiom to cover every situation in life, Ginnie; most of them very old indeed. I particularly like this rather recent one that is attributed to JFK:- "A rising tide lifts all boats" which describes the idea that when an economy is performing well, everyone will benefit from it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly, and I LOVE that idiom from JFK. How timely.
Ready and waiting for the party - great composition and selective colouring, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Martin! smile I'm ready.
I don't know what it is but I'd certainly give it a try. I'm just wondering how I could fit that expression in the weekly church newsletter this week smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHA! If you manage to make it work, Brian, do let me know. Astrid and I will be thrilled. smile

very appealing image, Ginnie .. .. imagining experiencing the title, though is quite another matter. :o)
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jennie...and do I ever know. I still don't "get" the idiom. smile
Oh how I enjoyed your V&V post, but I failed to mention how much I love the color on all the bottles. Beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Robin. smile
de belles couleurs pour ces liqueurs
Ginnie Hart: They're fun, Angevine, aren't they! smile Merci.

I have never heard that phrase before!!
Ginnie Hart: It was new for me, too, Cherry...and I still don't get it. HA!
Wonderful processing here Ginnie, I'm sure I cold have helped with the drinking of it!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sally, and HA! And to think all I did was take pictures!

well it sure sounds weird to me.. smile
Ginnie Hart: I still don't get it, Rian, after all these years. grin
Ummmm.... OK! Great photo!! The bottles are so elegant!
Ginnie Hart: A Dutch idiom....that I still don't get, Elizabeth. HA! But it makes sense to the Dutch. smile
