My Wife and her Butchered Sayings

My wife has a knack for butchering famous sayings and phrases. Some of my favorites I will list below so everyone can enjoy them. The funny part is that I understand what she means when she says them!

1. "We will burn that bridge when we get to it" rather than Don't burn your bridges before you cross them.
2. "You get my goat going" rather than You get my goat!
3. "1 dozen of one and a half of another" rather than 6 of one and a half-dozen of another.
4. "Let the cat out of the beans" rather than let the cat out of the bag.

These are the interesting malapropisms of my wife.
