Am I flirting with fire?Posted: August 8, 2022
A couple were making breakfast and she was playfully pushing his buttons. He told her to watch her step, and she responded with this nice alliterative malaphor. It is a congruent conflation of “flirting with disaster” and “playing with fire”, both meaning to take part in a dangerous undertaking.
A tip of the hat to Adam Jacob for hearing this one and sending it in.
