American’s use the word KNOCK in a wide variety of ways and for good reason. You can get a knock on the noggin when you bump your head in the basement. Yet, if unlucky your daughter can get knocked-up and have to marry her boyfriend at an early age. At that point, you would probably want to knock the living daylights out of the boy!
When opportunity knocks you have the once in a lifetime chance to knock one out of the park! If you were such a big success, it would knock your wife off her feet, it would literally knock her socks off.

Unfortunately, most of us have to learn in the school of hard knocks. Sometimes we just knock about looking for a career. We spend years knocking our heads against the wall to succeed. Eventually, we have to knock it off and accept what life gives us. Maybe work in a back-alley factory making knock-off toys for the stores. But if you were caught, the original toy maker would knock your block off.

So knock-on-wood that you can continue to knock yourself out doing what you enjoy best.

Oh by the way I didn’t mention Knock Knock jokes nor knockers, but that’s not a subject suitable for family folks.
