Let’s kick this down the line

The Queen of Malaphors, Naomi David, is back!  She uttered this beauty, which is a mashup of “kick this around” (mull over or consider something) and “down the line” (in the future), creating a definition of thinking about something for the future.  She may also have been thinking “up the line” (through the chain of command).  And of course she may have been thinking of “kicking the can down the road” (avoiding making a decision) although I believe the context was brainstorming.  A big thanks to Katie Norwood who passed this one on.
