    I think you got confused, Starry. You were to explain the meaning of A Baker's Dozen, then leave a saying or idiom for the next person to analyze.

    Baker's Dozen - 13, always make a little extra to be prepared for the unexpected. And if no unexpected guests show up, make the invitees fat.

    Don't try to teach your Grandma to suck eggs.

    You can't get blood from a turnip means that one cannot get more than the person has or can give, because the person does not have it!

    If you are on your back foot, you are at a disadvantage and forced to be defensive of your position.
