I wouldn’t nickel-pick over thatPosted: July 15, 2014
Oh boy, this is a good one. Kudos again to Vicky Ameel-Kovacs for hearing this beauty on the tv show, “The Talk”. Marie Osmond uttered this mash up of “nit-pick” (overly concerned with inconsequential details) and “nickel and dimed” (to charge small amounts to someone – a form of monetary nit pick). Perhaps pickle was also on her brain and nickle rhymes with that, or that nit and nickle have similar sounds. The fact that Vicky is watching “The Talk” concerns me a little, but I wouldn’t nickel-pick over that.
