Cross basesPosted: May 12, 2021
From a work zoom call uttered by a co-worker: “I’ll ask the next time I cross bases with him.” This is a mashup of “cross paths” (encounter someone) and “touch base” (contact someone or update someone). This is a near congruent conflation, as both phrases involve an interaction between people. rh, both meaning to encounter or contact somewomeonconfObviously cross paths and touch base. A big thanks to Mike Ameel for hearing this one and passing it on!
