I totally get what it means when something is out of whack but was it in whack before? What started this saying – out of whack? Why? I mean, for example – “It’s been the craziest day. I’m completely out of whack. Nothing is going my way today” or “It’s been a great day. I’m soooo in whack. Everything is going my way today.” ~ Ya… NO! I really feel for people trying to learn the English language as adults. It defies logic regularly.
If anyone out there has a good explanation as to how something can be out of whack without first having been in whack, please, please by all means explain it to me!
