Bad Timing

Trifextra: Week Sixty-One

Congratulations to the winners of both Trifextra and Trifecta.  I wish I'd had time to read you all.  Also wish I had time to reply to your gracious comments, this group is so supportive.
Now, on to the prompt: 
This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 words including an idiom somewhere within.  Examples of idioms include - add fuel to the fire or wear your heart on your sleeve.  You can find more examples and a definition of idiom here.  Good luck!
