Creative commentary plus crafty composition

So much for the calendar, it remains unseasonably cold – which according to a local forecaster gives us more opportunity for record-breaking – but here’s some additional warmth from enlivened clichés (with the original in italics):

  • They’re adding a mysterious purchase add-on, which means you get the whole kit and caboodle
  • If we let sleeping dogs lie then they better behave with integrity when they’re awake
  • After a cold, cocooning winter like this one we’ll probably like a coiled spring when it finally bursts upon us
  • The poet can’t make up his mind how to section the collection of his works, so he hopes we’ll be O.K. with knowing it chapter and verse
  • The big book of cooking pronouns is full of a little of this, a little of that recipes
  • The matches are used up, so we’ll have to depend on ourselves becoming light as a feather
  • Like, it’s going out of style to depend on young people to avoid using catchphrases
  • Due to his limited knowledge of the subject, the writer decided to make a long story short, a poor professional decision
  • The triple lock, stock, and barrel competition is a highlight of the hunting games
  • My hands were feeling sore so I just made it by the skin of my teeth to save time
