Expressions of Concessions

January 30, 2012

Swallowing one’s pride
Falling on one’s sword
Taking the heat
Taking a haircut
Stepping up to the plate
Taking a hit
Eating humble pie
Eating crow
Feeling the pinch
Owning up to it
Paying the piper
Facing the music.

(I love the imagery — and the underlying honesty of it all.)
