the egregious offenders:
- rock star/ninja
- reach out
- open the kimono
- out of pocket
full disclosure: i have, at some point in my life (likely circa 2005), used each of these abhorrent phrases -- with the exception of "open the kimono" which is just weird. i hang my head in shame and try to help the next generation avoid my mistakes.
best part of this article? the fact that i got huffpo to publish "OG" as an acceptable adjective. win!
