“Don’t count your chickens before they hatch!”
Clearly … the term refers to not banking on anything … before it’s realized.
As you’d imagine … it’s a very old phrase and is believed to have existed in many forms, across various cultures.
One of the most recognized occurrences is Aesop’s Fable, titled … The Milkmaid and Her Pail … which originated somewhere between 600 and 550 BC.
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
Well, not much really.
