The Very Bones…

Our ‘100 word challenge’ here is to write, well… 100 words, of course, based on the photograph of bones shown in the prompt. So here is my shot:

Bones (like these) have been made the subject of many sayings, often relating to the inmost being and core of something or someone. Some are easy to understand; others are enigmatic. Expressions such as:

– pared to the bone
– I love the very bones of [him]
– bone weary
– bone dry
(Now that’s silly – if your bones were dry, you’d have a serious problem!
– bone idle
(How can bones be idle? They do a serious job for your whole life!)

I could go on, but there’s food waiting for me. I must go and eat, or I’ll just be skin and bone.

    Dem bones, dem bones ♫. I’ll make no bones about it, that was very good. Loved the parting sentence too!
