I was flying by the edge of my seatPosted: December 7, 2017 | |
This one was said on the Food Network show “Cooks vs. Cons” (season 2, episode 5). It is a nice mashup of “flying by the seat of my pants” (to rely on one’s instinct instead of following a set plan) and “on the edge of my seat” (very excited and giving your full attention to something). “Seat” is the common word here, and the source of the mixup. A big thanks to Hillary Harding for spotting this one!
