So … I was thinking the other day about the phrase “… with baited breath.”

Who would possibly want their breath to smell like bait?!?

And who deemed that to be a good thing to have?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to say “… with minted breath”?

I can’t see the toothpaste and mouthwash industry putting up much of a fight.

Although the cinnamon lobby would probably file a lawsuit.
