You know how sometimes there’s a word or phrase that you might use and you never really thought about the original meaning or even how it’s spelled? Yeah, that’s “on tenterhooks” for me. Although now that I know how to spell it, let me say I’m on tenterhoooks about next week. Awesome things are coming!
See you then!
