I'm sorry, Mitchell I totally dropped the ball on this one despite thinking 24/7 before I called it a day and hit the hay. I thought I would get my act together the next day, so went back to the drawing board as soon as I had my first cup of joe. To make a long story short, I found this task no piece of cake and no lightbulb went off in my head, so I sadly I pulled the plug on this effort. I hope someone else has a brainstorm and posts their thoughts, but if not cut your readers some slack because they may have bigger fish to fry this week!
Mitch, thank you for picking up my slack. I have lost track of time travelling and working between cities. I have to laugh because I am still finding my way around these forums and had just looked up "idioms" for posting. In the case of "Greasing the Skids", as it a term thrown around by the more "experienced" members of the team and, as a younger member, I was able to grasp on understanding of its meaning based on the context of the discussion without knowing what a "skid" was at the time. It seems that some Idioms are the verbal picture for the old saying "A picture is worth a thousand words"."Greasing the Skids" is a very useful tool in project management and stakeholder engagement. I just need to figure out where to drop the discussion.I am curious as to what idioms some have heard that they know must be a decade or two before their time.
