    I added "on the ground" as in troops on the ground, boots on the ground, and commander on the ground. I always want to scream the question " are there boots hovering?" :-) I also nominated "went missing".

    Perhaps, it just seems to me that acclamation has come to stand for “ I am learning how to play the trumpet†and tweaked has come to mean “ I put some dimes in the bottom of my valve capsâ€. :dontknow:

    And don't get me started with "Ground Zero"

    I recognize this as meaning a nuclear bomb has detonated over this spot. How this term is misused even to this day!

    I submitted "free gift".

    I hate that one. It's almost as bad as "for free!" For free what?

    It's just "free" as in "I got them to throw in a calendar free!" not " I got them to throw the calendar in for free".

    Free of cost.

    ...for free... For free what?
