Silly me!

How could I have forgotten the times I have been able to use "Sure enough," "You bet," and "smarten up."

Sometimes I can be such a dumbass mule. ... :P

Great examples, you guys! Thanks!

I have some friends who keep saying they're going to visit. First April fell through, then June, now July doesn't look like it's going to work. So now we're talking August. And -- you know what's coming -- I am almost hoping they'll cancel then, too, so I can say

"Well what the hell happened to August?"


The desire for a premeditated Brokie-ism triumphs over the desire to see old friends... tell ya what, that takes it to a whole new level!  Gotta respect such dedication to a worthy cause.  thanks for the much-needed laugh  :laugh:

This is not a saying...but...I am fixated on a tree outside my house. It is an ancient Ponderosa pine tree, and I call it (to myself) the Brokeback tree. Something happened to it recently...in the last 50 years or so. Maybe lightning hit it. Anyway, the top split in two, and the two main branches grew intertwined. It looks like two wings unfurling. It reminds me of the vision I see when I hear the song "Wings." I will try to post a photo of it for you, but it is too dark and rainy here tonight. BBM is everywhere I look!

I used to say "Excuse me?" or "Pardon me?" when I didn't catch what somebody said. Now I just say, "Hunh?" It may not sound as polite, but I enjoy it much more!

What a great thread!  :)

Friend, if they measured in words rather than individual posts, you'd be there already.  :)

Or even in original ideas.
