Daisies (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
I saw this malaphor in today’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and had to post it right away. It is a mash up of “stop and smell the roses” (pause and enjoy life) and “pushing up daisies” (dead). “Wake up and smell the coffee” may also be in the mix. Not sure if daisies really have any smell, but I don’t really want to push any of them up anytime soon.
