Catch your eye

Posted by Lotg on June 12, 2004

My 6'2" American Unicorn (you never realised they grew that big did you???) used the following expression: "Well, we will see if another once catches my eye", and said that might be one for the PF site. So I've beaten him to the punch (presumably an old boxing term) and entered it myself.

It is a funny way to describe something that grabs your attention. Anyone know the origin?
