    Thank you. :)
    I can't think of a single one! What a strange assignment.

    I know a good joke with it in if it's any help:

    - I have the body of a god. Unfortunately, that god is Buddha!

    Well done! Can we find anyone here who has ever used/heard it?

    I am NOT able to fulfill that requirement.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    By the way, ppoint, welcome to the forums.

    I'm a bit interested in what makes your tutor think such idioms exist.

    Do come back to us later to tell us if he/she or any of your classmates have found any others.
