 v. phr.— «Onstage, the band was twinkle-toeing it toward the big finale. Kluger tore around the skins in a frenzy, the bassist plunking along behind. The keyboardist drew out a tinkling flourish, sticking the landing.» —“Strip Search” by Lauren Wilcox Washington Post Sept. 18, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
