You nailed it!
This has always been an expression of celebration for me. An ah-ha! moment. You got it! 100%! It’s all you! Like that.
Then an alternate meaning came along to wreck the whole thing. Should I wonder why “nailing” and “screwing” someone measure out to the same thing? Is there something about construction that screams sex? ‘Cause nothing says sexy like a hardware store, I suppose.
I’ve started getting texts from the salon that did my nails once and I have to say I haven’t been swayed. Are my feet a mess? Oh yeah, but having well appointed toenails doesn’t even crack my top fifty priorities right now.
You know what does? Nailing this election cycle. Period.
Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “nail.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!
