Make up your own stories for the origin of common expressions like “keep your fingers crossed,” “shooting fish in a barrel,” etc.
Did you know that the term “poetic justice” was coined when a poet, having received a terrible review, and thus being banned from court, schemed against his reviewer? The reviewer found himself a subject of an investigation that eventually led to his arrest for plotting against the Queen. Reviewers, beware! You never know when someone might seek poetic justice for something you write about them.
