    Show off vs time to shine

    Hello,

    What sounds more natural?

    Waitress comes in the kitchen, saying to the chefs:
    "Guys, we have Jamie Oliver here and this is his order. Your time to shine has come, guys."
    "Guys, we have Jamie Oliver here and this is his order. Show off."


    Thanks a lot

    They both sound OK to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    They do to me too, though they're not synonymous.
