  • Nanao Ise

    Did it come from theater, where actors had to put on impromptu performances – learning their lines hurriedly in the wings of the stage and later receiving cues from other stage members?

    Or perhaps from birds and how they might have been said to “wing their way” to the recipients of letters?

  • You are correct, Nanao Ise.

    Actors who don’t know their lines go on stage and rely on people in the wings to feed them their lines. They are, in other words, winging it.

    Great job, you are today’s winner.
