phrase of the day: on the qui vive

The word of the day is on the qui vive:
on the alert; watchful
< French literally, (long) live who? (i.e., on whose side are you?) (

"You must do the best that you can, and if you are terrorized into closing your eyes, try keeping your wits about you, your sixth sense on the qui vive."
 - Karen Elizabeth Gordon, Torn Wings and Faux Pas
