I feel like I have seen fidgety people described as being in perpetual motion before, however when I googled it to see if this was the correct usage of the term all I could find where perpetual motion machines. I was fairly certain this was an actual phrase you could describe people with, but could not find any evidence to suggest it was. Does anyone know if you can use the phrase like that? If so where have you seen it used?
I'm aware of the what the words mean seperately, I'm asking as they seem to have a different connotation/meaning when used together as a phrase
