It’s just putty around my fingers

This is another malaphor uttered by Jack de Golia’s wife.  It appears to be a congruent conflation of “wrapped around my little finger” and “putty in my hands”, both describing someone easily manipulated or controlled.  Both phrases are usually describing a person rather than a thing, so not sure what Ms. De Golia was referring to.  Again, idioms referring to body parts are frequently mixed up in the clutter of our minds.  Thanks Jack for sending this one in!
