Pushing the Envelope
Head Over Heels - In the fourteenth century, it was written as “heels over head”, which makes a lot more sense. Logically, it meant to be upside down, or, as to turn heels over head. Otherwise, we spend most of our waking moments “head over heels”. Today, it means to be madly in love.
I've noticed I have some of these lol only are my friend when no one else is around. As soon as other people show up, they don't know me. Lame.
On the Ball - The original saying was “put something on the ball”, in that unusual speed or a deceptive motion was used by the pitcher when throwing the baseball. From 1909: “Cates had something on the ball. The two innings he worked he had the Pirates buffaloed.” An earlier expression was to “Always keep your eye on the ball” from the mid 1800’s. By the 1930s, it was used to mean somebody who was especially alert or capable at what they are doing.
