Swing over
Zip over
Hop on over
Swing by
Zip by
Drop by
Those are all phrases relating to driving over or walking over to see someone. Where in the world did they come from? And can you imagine if that’s what we really did?
Hook up to a zip-line and zip by.
Hopping, swinging, dropping?
Why don’t we say I’ll drive over, or I’ll walk over?

Do you have any phrases like that?
