    BODY PARTS AS VERBS


    Many parts of the body can be used as verbs in either a physical or a metaphorical sense.

    You can *head* a company, but if things go wrong you'll have to *shoulder* the blame, or *face* your investors.

    A good leader *backs* his employees, but if you don't *toe* the line you might get *skinned*.

    Did you *muscle* your way into that job?

    You might *eye* someone suspiciously, or wait for the police to *finger* a suspect.

    But if you need to get out of town, try *thumbing* a ride.

    You can ride with me if you can *stomach* the thought.

    I don't always sing along with the radio, but you might see me *mouthing* the words.
