Sign Language Wednesday

Tomorrow I’m going to be announcing a giveaway to celebrate my 400th post that’s coming up next week so make sure you stop by for details.
It’s week three of Sign Language Wednesday.   I got the idea to ask all of my readers to leave me a word that I could write on a sign and then photograph. The photograph would relate in someway to the word.   And thus in very simple terms the event was born.  We’ve seen Serendipity and Love so far.
This weeks word was suggested back on week one (and those others I am trying to find the perfect picture for so be on the lookout Keely, Sara and Kimberly).  I can’t even remember how she found me or how I found her but from the first post I read on her blog I was hooked.I like to read her blog because she’s insightful, makes me laugh and has no problem poking fun at herself in a gentle way. Dishing it out with reality and style and with No Botox Allowed this week’s word comes from Wendy who is also my featured blogger of the day.
The dictionary would define todays two word combination as such:


Function: adverb

Etymology: Middle English, from Old English nā, from ne not + ā always; akin to Old Norse & Old High German ne not, Latin ne-, Greek nē- — more at aye

Date: before 12th century

1 achiefly Scottish : not b—used as a function word to express the negative of an alternative choice or possibility no>

2: in no respect or degree —used in comparisons no better than the rest of us>

3: not so —used to express negation, dissent, denial, or refusal <no, I’m not going>

And the second part:

Botox            Listen to the pronunciation of Botox
—used for a preparation of botulinum toxin

So I give you, No Botox:

This handsome guy is actually out in front of a bathroom store near my house. We convinced a visiting friend that standing in front of him and having your picture taken was on the level of kissing the Blarney Stone in Ireland.  Yep, he fell for it and I’ve got the picture to prove it 🙂
We did eventually tell him the truth.  Needless to say we no longer speak.
What would your definition of No Botox be?  What would your picture look like?  Don’t forget to leave me your word suggestions for next week!
Be sure to stop by No Botox Allowed and give Wendy a shout hello!

  1. LOL! I love the position of the sign too 🙂 My No Botox picture would maybe be one of those really wrinkly looking dogs, a Shar Pei I think they are called. They remind me that wrinkles can be cute (in this breed I think the wrinkles can be irriating for them though).


  2. Oh, that is just too funny! I really do love this feature!My no-botox pic would be photoshopped to have Nicole Kidman in it. Girlfriend needs to lay off the stuff in a big way!And 400 posts!!! Congrats, what a HUGE accomplishment!


  3. Oh Andrea — I love you—I think that is one of my FIRST real shout outs!!!! whooppee. that ended up being a cute post on the no Botox. You’re home made sign is funny.
