Peace of quietPosted: September 5, 2022 Filed under: Uncategorized 2 Comments
The Facebook meme below ends with the words “peace of quiet”. At first blush this appears to be just a typo, but in fact is a nice mashup of “peace and quiet” (a period of calm) and “peace of mind” (a feeling of being safe or protected). A big thanks to Kathryn McCary for spotting this subtle malaphor.
Reminds me of a sign I saw outside a rochester bar a while back –
“Don’t cry over spilled milk. It could of been beer.”
