I absolutely love old sayings and phrases.
Pappy and I just talked about that recently, wondering where so many of them even come from.
Yesterday, I pondered on cup of Joe.....
today, let's look at "jump the gun".
What made me even think of that phrase was when I was leaving a blog comment for Ms. Melanie. It reminded me of my word for 2016.....
in the here and now.....
and don't over think, or over do, or 'jump the gun' making a decision!!!
How about you?
Can you already see your word coming into play in this New Year?
Jump the gun:
make a sudden, unexpected movement;
begin something before preparations for it are complete
'Jump the gun' derives from track and field races and was preceded in the USA by the phrase 'beat the gun' (or pistol).
