  1. That’s great.

    When was the last time you used that expression? Did you hear it from anybody? Any movie quotes?

    I hunger for your answer!

    Francisco, I always love your enthusiasm! The last time I used this expression was yesterday. I usually say something to one of my kids, then I think hey, that’s a good word for a post. So, I write it down on a list and then post about it later. Yes, people still say it. Not as much as people did in the 90s, but I still hear it. I don’t know of any movie quotes with it, but again, I’m horrible with movie quotes. 🙂

    I wouldn’t say this to my boss, unless I wanted to be funny, but it’s a good thing to say to kids or friends. But, it does come across (in my opinion) as a little lighthearted. Which is great for me, because that’s how I am.

  3. Thanks, children are a great inspiration!
