Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is “take the plunge“ and its meaning is “to commit oneself to something (a risky task/decision); to decide to do something you, in fact, want to do (even if it is a risky or dangerous one); go for it, throw caution to the wind, go all out”.
Example Sentence: In fact, not having a television was taken as a sign of intellect. The idiot box was an alien invader, an unwanted immigrant; it belonged outside, not inside, the house….. Television is not what it used to be. And then came the pandemic, lockdowns and home quarantine, forcing even the most reluctant viewer to take the plunge into the streaming waterfall. I have never watched so much TV in my life as I have over the last year.
