Here's Thinking of You, Gracie Allen

April 01, 1990

Garbled adages and mixed metaphors are always fun, like in "A stitch in time saves a pound of cure." They sound like they should make sense, but they really don't. Gracie Allen used to be pretty good at it.

In "Perrier Crisis No Watershed for Evian," Feb. 27, an Evian spokesperson says, "We know the shoe could always fall on the other foot."

Gracie would have liked that one.
