Drops of Idioms

wordle
Jientje at Heaven is in Belgium, hosts these picture idioms.

I dropped everything today and worked on these idioms.

A Drop in the Bucket:
A very small part of something big or whole.
Origin:From the Bible, Isaiah 40:15 (King James Version):
"Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing."


At The Drop Of A Hat:
Willing to do something immediately.

Origin:his phrase probably alludes to signaling the start of a race or other contest by dropping a hat. [Late 1800s]

The dragons decided to try this today you can see them HERE.
