This is a shortened version of the colorful expression, "flat out like a lizard drinking." I don't know why this particular image is used to convey how I am feeling right now as the semester and year officially end: hellishly busy, juggling a million things, exhausted. Also a great, noncommittal way to flake out of boring events. "Sorry mate, I'd love to make your book launch, but I'm flat out."
