As those of you who follow my blog know, I am well into creating my second volume of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, It is my plan to have it ready to release this coming October. In order to do this it takes long, tedious hours of research and work. It continues to keep my ‘on my toes’. In the first volume, I researched and expounded upon numerous ‘Off and On’ phrases, like Off the cuff, Off the top of my head, On again, off again, On a roll, On a shoestring, On cloud nine, On one’s toes, On shaky ground, On the lam, On the other hand, On the same page, On the tip of my tongue, and On the warpath. It would seem that the phrases would run out…but, believe it or not, they seem to go On and on. The off phrases don’t seem so endless. I picked up Off one’s feed, Off one’s rocker, and Off the grid. But watch out! Hold ON to your hat! (another one in the new book). Volume two has On edge, On a fast track, On a short leash, On someone’s dime, On, at or to someone’s doorstep, On the blink, On the button, On the edge of one’s seat, On the flip side, On the fritz, On or in the hot seat, On the QT, and On the wrong side of history, and I’m ‘here to tell you’ that this book is not only On the right side of history, it’s On the cutting edge of this genre in books.ant there are over 1000 more besides these!,Just make sure you own the first one first, Don’t ‘get the cart before the horse’ (that’s in the first book). This one is cross referenced with the first book, and has slight variations of some phrases just in case someone looks it up under that version, which refers the reader to the other version. I honestly believe it is more comprehensive than the original, but both are needed to see ‘The big picture.’ Stay tuned for updates!
