#207038 - 09/08/12 09:22 PM done for
I wrote a note recently in which I said somebody was "done for". In other words, he's reached the end of his line, the jump off point.
Voilą, all euphamisms aside, the gent is dying. But I realize, I said, he's "done for" instead of "he's dying".
Where did that expression come from, do you think?
