I get touched up just talking about thatPosted: December 6, 2021
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.
