I’m at my loose endsPosted: February 4, 2018 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: at loose ends, at my wit's end, expressions, humor, malaphor, malaphors, words 1 Comment
This one is very subtle, as it is a conflation of “at loose ends” (uneasy) and “at my wit’s end” (in a state of distress where patience has been lost). Both idioms are very similar sounding, but only one as the word “my” in it. A big thanks to Lisa Simpson for hearing this one and sending it in to the Malaphors page on Facebook. Join the page today!
and here I was thinking this was polite speak for diarrhea.
