When someone is down-to-Earth, it means that they are practical and realistic. They aren't silly and weird, and they don't live with their heads in the clouds. It just means they know...down on Earth not living in some imaginary place on a cloud thinking of things that aren't possible.

Good answer! How long did it take you to make it up?
