I would love to know how clichés get started and who spoke the original line, clueless it would become a household phrase. I am privy to one; "It's not over till the fat lady sings!" Wikipedia credits Dan Cook, Sportscaster for KENS TV San Antonio; "The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings." We lived in the San Antonio viewing area in the 1980's and I would describe Dan Cook as a contented man doing his job. It's odd that he received notoriety for a sentence totally out of character for his role.
"Sink or swim"! I'm confused; don't they mean swim or sink? If I'm in deep water, I'd better concentrate on swimming or I'll be sinking from sight. I guess hearing sink first does get a person's attention. Life is like that, problems confront me and I search for the best solutions. Yes, if sinking is a real danger, it's time to do that doggy paddle!
"Desperate situations call for desperate measures." I'd better spring into action fast! "Save me, O God, For the waters have come up to my soul. I have sunk in deep mire, and there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and a flood overflows me (Psalm 69:1-2 NAS)" David made the best decision in a desperate situation; he called out to God for rescue. He is ready and waiting to pull us to solid ground.
