Ok, so it’s an old saying whose origin is dubious at best. It simply means I’m moving up in the world and doing better. After 6 months of living in my public housing unit I now have a brand new temperature knob for my ancient GE Hotpoint range. To date I’ve only turned that oven on once to try and make a cardboard frozen pizza. Because I had to guess at the temperature with a dial without numbers I burnt it badly in just 15 minutes. Stubbornly I ate it anyway but have not used that oven since. The work order that was created all those months ago was finally completed when one of the maintenance guys came over with a new light bulb for my kitchen ceiling light fixture. He handled both work orders at the same time. Woo Hoo!
