A Jan. 21 posting by Chris Potts on Language Log discusses negated sentences that mean the same thing as their non-negated counterparts, the most well-known probably being this pair:
(1) (a) I couldn’t care less. / (b) I could care less.
This reminds me of another not-to-be-taken-literally negation that I first heard from my wife. She said:
(2) I miss not seeing her.
