I was at the market today, waiting in line behind a woman and her child. The child had decided in order to make the wait go faster the best plan was to touch everything around her, and even climb into the cupboard underneath the register, which, I will admit I did find amusing. In an effort to get her child to stop, the mother kept saying, “Touch with you eyes, honey. Touch with your eyes.”
My amusement suddenly shifted to that of perplexed pondering. I’d never heard this expression before. Was it genius or completely silly? In light of what was enfolding in front of me, clearly not the former but still, it had a nice ring.
As a phrase there is something mysteriously evocative about it.
I kind of like that.
Favourite phrase as of late?
