"On pins and needles" nghĩa là gì?

'On pins and needles' có từ pin là đinh ghim, kim băng, từ needle là kim tiêm -> cụm từ này = (như) đi/dẫm trên kim/gai -> nghĩa là cảm giác lo lắng, căng thẳng; (có lẽ giống) cảm giác gai người, bồn chồn như (ngàn) kim châm, các mem nhỉ :)

Ví dụ
“I was on pins and needles when I heard it was going to be released (được thả),” Ms. Leshin said in a telephone interview (phỏng vấn) from her office at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. “It’s something that’s been talked about for a long time. ... Honestly, it exceeded even what I could have imagined!”

The statement continued: “As for the show itself, we know millions of fans are on pins and needles wondering what will happen now. Let us reassure (khẳng định lại) you, When Calls the Heart has always been bigger than the sum of its parts, and it HAS NOT BEEN CANCELED. With the full support of the network, we have gone on a creative hiatus (gián đoạn) to do some retooling (trang bị lại) on the remaining Season 6 episodes. That process has already begun. Hope Valley will return to your TV screens as soon as we can bring the episodes to you.”

Now, the media is on pins and needles waiting to see what Trump will have to say about all this, as the world waits to see what will become of the Assange extradition request.
