    Wow, one’s more you teach us a great new slang.
    I know some windbags!
    Thank you Yvonne

    I know this might not be the right place to ask you some questions. However, please could you explain me the meaning of “SCORE”! ? I often read it in your tweets.
    Also I would like more examples of “I get my act together”.
    I’m sorry but you are the person who explains pretty well.

    Bettina, This is a great place for questions like this! Score means something like I scored a point in the game of life. 🙂 I mentioned my daughter liked to wash dishes and taught my son how to do it. So, that to me, is a point scored in the game of life or simply “score!”

    For your other question: I woke up late this morning. I couldn’t get out of bed. The kids didn’t want to get dressed. Everyone was hungry and needed to eat breakfast. Finally, I bucked up and got my act together and made breakfast. It means that I got organized and finally accomplished what I needed to do.

    I hope that helps!
