Wicked

No rest for the wicked…

I just like how this sounds. This phrase originates from the Book of Isaiah where it had a serious meaning as in, “There is no peace, says the Lord, for the wicked.” So literally – the wicked shall be tormented. Somehow it has crossed over into an idiom with a more light-hearted meaning and has been used by authors and rock bands. Now the saying suggests paying a penalty for a fun time.

Did you eat too many chocolate eggs yesterday and are now headed to the gym – no rest for the wicked!
