Sincerely, your insecurities.

Went to #aikido weapons practice tonight, and Sensei said "good job" to me _twice_.

In a work conversation this morning (starting early because I am annoyed), I was about to use the idiom "jump the gun", then realized I wasn't sure it was familiar enough to my non-English-native colleagues.
Anyone have any advice or reading I can do? I'm trying to be more inclusive, although all of my colleagues have excellent English I don't want to accidentally cause confusion.
There are several problems with baking cookies during #Ramadan:
1. The house smells delicious, but it's three and a half hours until sunset so I can't eat the cookies.
2. I have a pile of cookies, but it's three and a half hours until sunset.
3. I can't eat batter right out of the bowl!
Also, it then turned out I didn't have a replacement bulb anyway, so I got to sweep up glass while holding a flashlight with the other hand.
All clean and new lightbulb in today, but oy, what a mess.
