On a recent talk show, a caller said the radio guest had “hit the nail on the head.” Wow, what perception!
I don’t mean to appear haughty, but I find it hard — always have — to commend such a caller for profundity. “Hit the nail on the head” is a metaphor meaning that what the guest said was absolutely correct. Up to that time, I’d never met-a-phor I didn’t like.
How is it possible to comment further without carting out the vitriol and sarcasm? I’ll try.
