    Default As right as pie

    Hello everyone,
    I'm searching for the exact meaning of 'As right as pie'. Is it an expression following an obvious truth? Context: a divorced woman says she's allright. Her best friend says: "Of course you are. As right as pie."
    Thank you!
    Marcel

    I've heard the expressions 'right as rain' and 'nice as pie'

    For instance ."I've got a headache". to which the reply might be -"take a couple of aspirin and you'll be right as rain in no time"

    After the boy was scolded for being naughty he was as nice as pie.

    Thank you, Curmudgeon. So, maybe this expression doesn't really exist, but is a combination of two.
    Thank you for your reply.
