: Hi, where does the phrase "frame yourself" come from? My granny says it, (and so do I, much to my partner's annoyance lol), when someone is nothing doing something properly or too slowly.

Well, you could ask Granny why she says that. I haven't heard this one before. My guess, though, is that if you stand still too long, you remind her of a picture in need of framing. She's indulging in humor by way of exaggeration. ~rb
