Sweating Bullets

Posted by DanielCohen on June 01, 2000

My guess is that the phrase "Sweating Bullets" is simply a colourful metaphor to illustrate the degree of stress it would take to sweat so much.

Can anyone tell me more about this phrase? When and where did it originate?

Thank you. This is such an interesting forum!
