A brain pretzel is a term that came to mind one day when puzzling out a problem. A pretzel is a twisted piece of dough, and the one above has some extra embellishments that suit this term even more. It’s a description of that moment when you are thinking really hard about something, and your head tilts to the side, and one eye is squinted while the other one is wide open and that eyebrow is pointed straight up in the air. It is what I imagine is happening to the brain on the inside when a person is struggling to figure out a conundrum. The look of perplexity on the outside, with twists and knots forming on the inside as the puzzle gets solved.
That is what a brain pretzel is. This was an introduction to one of many Tish-isms. It’s not trending anywhere yet, but it could be a game changer. If it catches on. There will be more. Always thinking…and full of surprises.
