An idiom, by definition, is a phrase or expression that has a figurative or sometimes literal meaning. There are approximately twenty-five thousand idiomatic expressions in the English language. I have chosen idioms that portray everyday issues as well as social and political issues. I flip back and forth visually between the literal meaning and the figurative meaning using humor. Humor is a great equalizer. Humor lowers a persons defenses and makes entering into a conversation about difficult topics, less threatening. Once in the conversation, no topic is off limits. It is not my position to poke fun at our social and political downfalls but to add a lightness to the burden that we carry today in having a frank, honest, and no holds barred exchange. All, without feeling the culpability that todays social and political correctiveness bestows.
