aka The Frazzled Mom
Spicy isn’t necessarily equivalent to hot in flavor. Rather, it aids in enhancing the taste or smell. Cinnamon spice smells divine when walking into a bakery. I don’t like cinnamon in everything
(for example, coffee…bleh), but I do enjoy the fragrance. Apparently a lot of people in Pismo enjoy cinnamon rolls as the line is usually out the door every morning. But it’s so worth it! At least once a year. The gooey, warm, sugary, cinnamony mix (I say it’s a word) smothered within the roll and smeared on top with a layer of cream cheese icing… *sigh* It isn’t a healthy breakfast, but it’s a nice treat for sure.
With this thought in mind, what idioms spice up the English language?
Be the spice of life – to be someone who makes life exciting and interesting.
Hunger is the best spice – food tastes better when one is hungry.
Variety is the spice of life – having different experiences in life is what makes it interesting and enjoyable. (Though there’s something to be said for routine and relaxation!)
Spice things up – to make something more lively and exciting.
