After snatching my handbag he just legged it.
As soon as I heard about the fire I legged it over here as fast as I could.
By the aid of one front leg it places consecutive heaps of loosened particles upon its head, then with a smart jerk throws each little pile clear of the scene of operations.
Then it was time to leg it down to catch the last gondola!
Next time you break a (crab) leg it may be fun to share one of these facts with your tablemates.
