Re: Midrift instead of midriff (common in the wild)

I’ve heard this before, but forgot it until I saw your posting. It deserves consideration as an eggcorn on two counts: mid-rift would suggest the fleshy gap or rift between upper and lower clothed areas; mid-drift, which suggests a surplus of flesh which it may have been wiser to have left discreetly covered.
All this and a Google score of 16,800! Welcome!
