For your weekend enjoyment, we have a few more water cliches, a famous water quote, and a riddle (the answer can be found at the end of this post). Have fun!
What has holes in the top and bottom, holes in the middle, and holes on it’s sides, but still holds water?
“Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody.” ~Mark Twain. Remember to stay hydrated this weekend!
When someone refers to a “watering hole,” it either means a place where there is water for animals (or people) to drink, or they mean a bar or tavern.
If someone says they’re “in deep water”, they are in a difficult situation which is hard to deal with. In other words, they are in trouble. Deep water can be very dangerous, especially if someone can’t swim.
Along those same lines, if someone is “out of their depth,” the subject or problem at hand is beyond their understanding or competence.
Finally, when you “test the water” you try to discover what people think about an idea before you do anything about it, or to try to discover what a situation is really like before you become involved. Most problems that push people out of their depth arise when one fails to test the water, which leaves them in deep water…
Riddle answer: A sponge.
Have a great weekend!
