That describes me to a T
That describes me perfectly?
Yes, it describes you perfectly. I am not sure as to why 'T' is used though :s Just another English expression
me either! That's why i wanted to make sure. Judging by the context it fits, but why is it capital T ???
I think a T is used because it has perfect, simple straight lines. It makes a perfect 180 degree and two 90 degree angles. In a sense it is perfect, linear.
what about the perfection of capital O? or H? or X???
No, T is a common and often used expression. other letters sound weird.
Here is a link that possibly explains the origin:
Separate names with a comma.
