    Kicking every stone in his path?

    Hi,

    I'd like to know if there's another meaning for this expression:

    Jack's going to meet his date for the first time. He walks down to the tea shop, kicking every stone in his path...

    P.S. Does Jack really kick every stone? Or, it's an idiom or something which means Jack is vervous?

    Many thanks

    It's not an idiom so I suppose you are meant to understand it literally.
