- 'Drop us a line' - letter or phone call? 7 answers
One person with whom I've emailed before said to "drop me [them] a line". I always thought the intention of this phrase is to call the person, specifically by phone (via telephone line). It seems this person means to email them. I do think it's possible they mean to call them. Is it a widely accepted use of this phrase to mean "contact me" in general? Is this usage common among certain groups of people? Am I wrong in associating this with phones in particular?
