I get touched up just talking about thatPosted: December 6, 2021 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
There was an article in the Washington Post recently about golfer Collin Morikawa and his win at the DP World Tour Championship (November 2021). He was talking about making 7 straight birdies to overtake Rory McIlroy for the lead, saying, “It’s special. I get touched up just talking about that.” This is a nice congruent conflation of “being touched by (something/someone)” and being “choked up”, both meaning to have strong, tender emotions about something/someone. No , no fondling here. A tip of the toque to David Barnes for spotting this one and sending it in.
