: : "all for you to dot your eyes and cross your feet"
: : It sounds like "to dot your i's... but why feet????"
: : Thanx
: Because your fingers are already crossed. (Hint: it's a little joke.)
I believe the expression is: 'to dot your i's and cross your t's'. Meaning to make sure all is in order and completed and checked out before you proceed. Example: "This is a very important meeting Jim and you'd better make sure to dot your i's and cross your t's before you speak."
