    OK english guru

    what we are really interested in is the origin of the expression. Maybe even information on its origin date and place.

    George,
    If I come across any information on it, I’ll let you know. But, origin, date and place of expressions are not points that I try to focus on.

    You could just say jinx, you owe me a soda like everyone else. No one but embryos would say something like this. And urban dictionary has better definitions and slang meanings.
