I can't remember what we were discussing, but he asked me if he should do X, and I said, "No, I think that's unnecessary. That would be gilding the lily." And he was like, "WHAT?

Me: "Oh. Oh, my God, that completely threw me . . . I didn't know WHERE the hell you were going with that."
Associate: "What, you thought I was, what did you call it? 'Shucking the lilac' or whatever?"
