“I’m going to wing it!”

Although wings (“le ali”) are found on birds and planes, this phrase uses “wing” as a verb and has nothing to do with flying!

When you say you’re going to wing it, it means you are not going to prepare for something, instead you are going to rely on luck and your own improvisation.

  • “Have you done your homework?”

“No, I’m going to wing it in class tomorrow.”

  • “Are you going to prepare for your job interview?”

“No, I’m just going to wing it.”

  • “Do you usually follow recipes when you cook?”

“No, I look what I’ve got in my fridge and just wing it!”
