On Idioms



One of my friends ended a recent email, "Hope all is well down your way...or is it up your way?"

I don't know if it is universal, or not, but in our family, we say "down" south, "up" north, "back" east (even if we've never been there before) and "out" west.

Since I live about 2 hours south and 30 minutes west of my friend, I guess that makes me "Down and Out". How depressing!
