I’d like to throw something out of the boxPosted: January 19, 2022
Another good one heard on a conference call. The contributor’s boss uttered this nice mashup of “throw out” (offer a suggestion) and “think outside the box” (to think freely). Both idioms involve the act of brainstorming, so it is natural that the speaker had a little storm brewing in his brain when he said this one. A big thanks to Verbatim for hearing this one and passing it on.
