It ain't over till the fat lady sings.

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings is a proverb, essentially meaning that one should not assume the outcome of some activity (frequently a sports game) until it has actually finished. The proverb refers to Richard Wagner opera suite Der Ring des Nibelungen and its last part, Götterdämmerung. The "fat lady" is valkyrie Brünhilde, who is traditionally presented as a very buxom lady with horned helmet, spear and round shield. (Although Brünhilde actually wears a winged helmet) Her aria lasts almost ten minutes and marks the end of the opera.

I just want to not be the fat lady any more.
