: Recently I heard someone use the phrase "put some salt in it".
The use was obviously figurative, but I really did not know quite
what was meant. Is this a common phrase? Does it have a general
meaning as a metaphor?
: Thanks. - Patty
Not a common phrase to my knowledge. What was the context--put some salt in what? May be equivalent to "spice it up"--would that fit?
