I can't read that one without thinking of a Dorothy Parker story. Someone challenged her to use the word horticulture in a sentence. She came up with, "You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think."

I've wanted to play the game, but I've been "sitting on the fence". I decided why not
" give it a go" and "lay all my cards on the table"! After all "there is no time like the present". As they say "Carpe' Diem" .

Let's "cut to the chase."

Until I read some of these, I didn't know or understand their intended meaning. Yes, it's all very clear to me now. My head is swollen with all of these and I'm beginning to realize there are many more American idioms than I realized. Time to have a brownie and a glass of milk.
