Discover Prompts, Day 6: Hands

(Stream of consciousness):

Hired hand

Handy man

Hand me that screwdriver

(You’ll understand the picture if you look up the word chiropteran on the list of chiro- words below)

Give me a hand

Hand-me-down

Helping hand

Hand it over

Hands up!

Jazz hands

Hand towel

hand-in-glove

hand-made

raised by hand (Pip in Great Expectations)

hand-crafted

hands off!

Hand it over

I could go on all day, I think. I’m going to end, however with this: I always wondered where the word chiropractor came from until I looked it up one day. Chiro is from Latin. It means hand. Makes sense 🙂

And just in case you’re bored and need something to do, here’s a whole list of words that start with chiro-. See if you can figure out what they all mean. (Ignore the little numbers.)
