Being in an open office, one has no choice but to eavesdrop!  This morning, I overheard coworkers talking about where old `sayings` came from and something about how one saying came from the circus.

Having a few minutes to spare, I decided to look up a few sayings out of curiosity. Scrolling through the long list, I hit the `P’s` and got to Potluck. Seeing our office has a potluck function every two weeks (and this week is potluck week), I thought it would be good to read.

POT LUCK: In the past all kinds of food went into a big pot for cooking. If you sat down to a meal with a family you often had to take ‘pot luck’ and could never be quite sure what you would be served. REF: http://www.localhistories.org/sayings.html

Very interesting!
