Cliché: with one hand tied behind my back

(entered on/for Nov. 07, 2005)

Meaning: I’ll do this thing while giving myself a disadvantage.
Use examples.
Rewrite 1: while
hopping on one foot
Rewrite 2: with my good eye closed
Rewrite 3: while standing on my head
Rewrite 4: while turning one-handed

Comment: This one can be fun to rewrite – think of something really
ridiculous and then twisttiv2 it one more time, as I did in rewrites 2 and 4.

googled “clichés”:
