Idioms

Reviewing Idioms last week, I had the kids pick from a list of common sayings, then draw the literal meaning and the cultural meaning.  I allowed them to use other idioms, not listed, with my approval.  One kid said his idiom was going to be "There's a bone in my leg."
I was intrigued but confused.
Me: "Oh do you mean: 'I have a bone to pick with you'?"
Student: "No."
Me: "Ummm...lets stick with one from the list."

Now I want to try and use that non-idiom in an everyday situation.
