I should make this a regular blog feature: Mangled expressions...quite possibly my favorite serendipitous experience. I posted this on the fb today:
Public service announcement:Use it in a sentence? I'd love to!:
You "flesh out" ideas. You "flush out" toxins.
"Colonics or Juicing? I'm trying to flesh out a way to flush out my system"Then, today I heard "Money was not an object."
I thought, well, actually money is an object.
Perhaps you meant to say, "Money was no object."?
Everyone has to figure out how not to go stark-raving mad in meetings, this is my way.
