yard sale
 n.— «I responded to her praise with a “face plant” and “yard sale”—falling flat while my skis and poles went in four directions. It might have hurt if we both hadn’t been laughing so hard.» —“A Turn For The Better After A Year Off The Slopes, A Skier Bravely Undergoes Six Days Of Basic Training” by Bob MacDonald Boston Globe Jan. 31, 1988.
