hey, rambling–i’ve been meaning to ask you for a long time: what’s “the great drawin’ down”? where does that phrase come from?

what’s “the great drawin’ down”?
well there may be a more advanced etymology for the phrase but around here it means that you’re in trouble !

e.g Don’t say something like that or the boss will draw down on top of us.

It also means “to discuss something” with someone … e.g. did john draw down with you about the game ?
Everything was fine until you drew down about the Pope and his policies !

Love that quote about communication!

You’ve got a gift for “communication” yourself and, indeed, alot of us are “listening”!
