In the mind of the beholderPosted: April 22, 2019 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: expressions, in one's mind's eye, in the eye of the beholder, malaphor, words Leave a comment
This one was heard on 710 WOR in New York City. It appears to be a combo of “in the eye of the beholder” (subjective appreciation made by an individual viewer) and “in (one’s) mind’s eye” (in one’s imagination). “Mind” and “eye” are similar sounding words. A big thanks to Verbatim for hearing this one and sending it in.
