Have you ever wondered why we "go Dutch", "hog the show", "keep our cool" or "kick the bucket"? Perhaps you've pondered on who originally "let the cat out of the bag", "made his mark", "looked a gift horse in the mouth" or "had a gut feeling". If such phrases have you "tickled pink" - or even "seeing red" - you can find out in this book how and when nearly 2000 of them came into use and what they originally meant.
