English term or phrase:It didn't have to be up.
Kiki wanted to know what I would contribute to Filly's "Sex VS Love" issue I didn't have the faintest idea. Kiki said that was ok because whatever I wrote, it didn't have to be "up". It could be "true." But "funny true."
Not "down true" or "icky true."
