I've quite often got on a soapbox and blown my own trumpet about mixed metaphors. Radio 4's Today programme guests seem to produce the most interesting verbal pictures. Recently, 'We're standing on the precipice of a runaway train,' was quite preposterously brilliant. 'The last throw of the dinosaur' was even better.
So big up to Bob for a wonderful weekend's teaching and training; but this blog is not concerned with that for the moment. Oh no. This is the place to salute, 'When you've got bees in your bonnet they tend to grow.'
