Finding a doctor on the weekend is kind of touch or missPosted: May 22, 2015
This perfectly formed malaphor was uttered by a hospital nurse. It is a mash up of “hit or miss” (at random, haphazardly) and “touch and go” (chancy). Touching is just a mild form of hitting so I can see where the speaker became confused. The two phrases also describe a thing likely not to occur. Thanks to Deb Mande for hearing this one and sending it in!
