No, this was not said in an erectile dysfunction commercial, but rather by Heidi Przybyla on MSNBC’s Morning Joe the other day. She was talking about the Mueller investigation. It is a congruent conflation of “petering out” and “winding down”, both meaning to slowly come to a conclusion or end. Another tip of the hat to Frank King for spotting this one. He has the ears of a hawk.
This is a congruent conflation of “wrapping up” and “winding down”, both meaning to bring to an end. Also wrapping gifts comes to mind. Merry Christmas everyone!
