I have it on the tip of my mind

Bill Maher was talking to Rep. Ro Khanna regarding strategies for the Democrats on his show, “Real Time with Bill Maher”. Discussing the issue of the economy, Maher blurted out this nice conflation of “on the tip of (one’s) tongue” (almost able to be recalled) and “on (one’s) mind” (occupying one’s thoughts). This one is similar to an earlier post, “I have it on the tip of my hand”. https://malaphors.com/2012/08/20/i-have-it-on-the-tip-of-my-hand/

A big thank you to Mike Kovacs and Robyn Bottoni for both hearing this one and sending it in within hours of each other.
