Pigmentstyinthesky

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: PIG ment STY in the SKY

Sentence: My father was an avid bird watcher and an environmentalist. In spite of that he believed in science and technology and that they could make all our dreams come true; and we could have the best of everything that new discoveries and inventions could give us as well as preservation of the environment. As I look now up into the trees filled with garbage, far above a landscape decorated with the brightly coloured advertisement slogans of days gone by, they remind me of the vast array of bright coloured birds I once stood watching in awe. Now those bright colours make me think that my father’s pie in the sky dreams have become pigmentstyinthesky.

Etymology: PIE IN THE SKY + PIGMENT + PIGSTY: PIE IN THE SKY:a phrase that means a fanciful notion or ludicrous concept PIGMENT:Particles that are made of various natural and synthetic substances used to add color to solutions such as ink or paint PIGSTY: Slang A dirty or very untidy place

Jetsamstream

artr

Created by: artr

If only they could stay this fresh and colorful but time and exposure to sunlight would soon alter his almost-decorative trees and bushes to debritrees and trashrubs.
