I just want to get under your feathersPosted: October 10, 2016
This was a comment from a Facebook “friend”. It’s a nice congruent conflation of “getting under your skin” and “ruffling your feathers”, both meaning to irritate or annoy someone. This seems to happen a lot on Facebook, even among “friends”. Props to Vicki Ameel-Kovacs, the reigning Malaphor Queen, who saw this one and passed it on.
