While I rarely see "gusto and abandon" used in a text, it has popped up in an article I have read yesterday.
The sentence in the article says:
"But before we plunge headfirst into the fray with gusto and abandon, let's pause for a moment"
I have asked a couple of colleagues about it and all they could do is explain the meaning of it, which is "doing something with enthusiasm and without regard to fear"
My interest is knowing how these two words came together? "Gusto" & "abandon" don't seem to fit together.
