Fishing for something – can you identify your catch?
Stretching to achieve flexibility
You are sixteen not going on seventeen
Mind your P’s and Q’s
You are fourteen not going on fifteen
Not on your Nelly
You are six
Fact is stranger than fiction

Fishing for something – can you identify your catch? - fishing for letters in this case, the ABC alphabet.

Stretching to achieve flexibility - Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a more advanced form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of the muscle group being targeted.

You are sixteen not going on seventeen – The letter P is the 16th letter of the alphabet.

Mind your P’s and Q’s - An old saying – the letter P is relevant.

You are fourteen not going on fifteen – The letter N is the 14th letter of the alphabet.

Not on your Nelly – An old saying – the letter N is relevant.

You are six – The letter F is the 6th letter of the alphabet.

Fact is stranger than fiction – An old idiom - the letter F is relevant
