Just a few thoughts.....
An 'Orange' is Orange, a 'Lemon' is Lemon, a 'Lime' is lime, a 'Tangerine' is tangerine..... So why isn't a Banana a 'Yellow'?
We say that we are 'Popping Round', to our friends.... Never 'Popping Square'. We 'Wash Up' crockery but 'Wash Down' walls.
On our Tops we have a head but, on our Bottoms we have Feet.... Our 'Bottoms' are Half Way Down. We always sit 'Down' but stand 'Up'.... but if I'm on the Top Deck, of a bus, aren't I Sitting 'Up'.... even if I'm Slouching 'Down'.
Someone, not me unfortunately, said that ''English is a Silly language because, only in English could a 'Slim Chance', and a 'Fat Chance' mean much the same''.
I have 'Posted' the story of the Two skunks before (one called Inn, and the other Owtt) but if anybody wants this again, please let me know).
In the mean time 'hang tight'.... sorry 'loose'.
