It seems weird, but I have "Ah-ha!" moments for expressions that I've heard all my life. Like "never look a gift horse in the mouth" - I never really got it until today. This is probably going to make me seem like an idiot, but not having ever looked in a horses mouth, or understood why you would do so, or hearing about anyone giving a horse to someone else, it always seems a bit of an odd expression.
Today for whatever reason I figured it out. "Never check the quality on a gift".
I'm not sure what caused this moment of clarity, but I'll accept them when ever they come. ;-)Posted by jim at January 5, 2010 06:29 PM
