Proud to be an American


This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 words including an idiom somewhere within.  Examples of idioms include - add fuel to the fire or wear your heart on your sleeve.  You can find more examples and a definition of idiom here.  Good luck!






She didn't mean to sell her soul, she said when he showed the bloody line, grinning about deviling details, contracts and clicked-on agreements.  She called up her lawyer, to sue, sue, sue.




These challenges can be so cruel.  How do you choose just 33 words?
