around the bend —(also: round the bend)
1. about to happen very soon:
- Saint Patrick’s day is around the bend and I need a partner for the jig contest.
2. (coll.) crazy; insane:
- Mars is completely around the bend and not the kind of guy you’d want your daughter to go on a date with.
around the corner—(also: round the corner) = around the bend 1:
- Halloween is just around the corner and candy seems to be everywhere (and at good prices!).
