Around the bend vs Around the corner

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!).
