I’m at my loose ends

This one is very subtle, as it is a conflation of “at loose ends” (uneasy) and “at my wit’s end” (in a state of distress where patience has been lost).  Both idioms are very similar sounding, but only one as the word “my” in it.  A big thanks to Lisa Simpson for hearing this one and sending it in to the Malaphors page on Facebook.  Join the page today!
