I was lost from the word start

I heard this one from a good friend and it sounded slightly wrong and yet it fit in context with the subject matter.  The best malaphors are the ones just slightly off kilter.  They also are difficult to remember as they blend into the lexicon landscape so effortlessly.  This subtle malaphor is a mix up of “from the word go” and “from the start”.
