Dammit, I hate it when I get bolted out of bed...

Okay, I know how can get bolted into something, and I understand how someone can bolt from something or someplace, but can anyone kindly explain to me how people "were bolted out of bed"? I mean--were bolted? Good lord!

While not exactly grammatically incorrect, as long as we're being picky, "a dog made a positive hit on a possible accelerant" just sounds...very...weird. There has to be a better way to have said that. Don't ask me what it is, though--it's late, I'm exhausted, and my brain is fried. I'm going to go bolt myself into bed momentarily... ;)

Gracias to LAURA for sending in this one!
