"get the ball rolling"
Just out of curiosity, does anybody know what an equivilent expression there would be in Spanish for the phrase, "get the ball rolling" as in, getting things started?
Vamos ya. Very vanilla, but very popular. At a meeting and a topic is being over discussed, that's what will come out of someone's mouth, sure as rain. Hear it alot too at the store when that person up front who for some reason doesn't know they are in the store getting ready to pay with a check and they knew that for like 5 hours but for some reason don't have their checkbook in hand when they just bought like a three shopping carts full of stuff....Vamos ya!
Depends on context, but here are a few ideas...
Empieza con algo - get started on something
I don't know if their is an idiom similar to "get the ball rolling," though.
