Assunto:  dodged the bullet
 
Mensagem:  Orlando, I think it is a GREAT suggestion.

I bet you can't tell me what "a bullet" means in American slang!  It's not just general slang, but a jargon used by only a fraction of the population.  Let's see if you can guess the meaning.  It has nothing to do with "the bullet" in the phrase "to dodge the bullet".  It is completely different.
