A Break

The Oxford English dictionary has 57 distinct uses for the verb break. So, our posts here will be all over the place, stuff that will provide a break from our four focused categories.

Don’t wish us luck, rather say as they do in the theatre and dance, “break a leg,” meaning impress the audience so much that you need to bend down to pick up the coins and flowers. The folks at Phrases.org.uk have these references as well: Evoke the powers of the celebrated actress Sarah Bernhardt, who had one leg. And, remember John Wilkes Booth broke his leg when jumping on stage attempting to flee after shooting President Abraham Lincoln.
