Seems like I'm using brokerisms all the time lately......

I've been playing Texas Holdem poker on the net, and the one I play, you can write messages to whoever else is at the table....some good chat sometimes....anyway....the other day, the pot was getting bigger and bigger, and I wrote....."there's some SERIOUS money here".........it wasnt till I thought about it later where I got that term from.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Believe it or not, a guy sitting in my office just told me that the equipment being used on a job was "held together with chewing gum and baling wire"!!

Whoo-eee. After a long, long while I finally have the opportunity to use a Brokieism from time to time - because there is someone who understands English! Thanks to Leslie!

Today I told her something about my husband staying up half the night, checkin for damn coyotes  :laugh:

Whoo-eee

Tell you what, I think that "whoo-eee" and the related "whoo-eee, yeah!" may be the new "yeehaw".  I feel like I'm noticing more and more Brokies drifting towards "whoo-eee."  It's more cumbersome to type, but it is awfully fun (and a bit under-used up until noe).

Do we have a thread that is about things we see or hear in our so-called "real life" that reminds us of BBM/BetterMost/Brokie-life?

I have two I've been meaning to post - the first was a truck that passed me on the highway that had the words "Lee & Eastes" on the side.  Which, of course, reminded of the BBQ being planned partly by LEE, that will take place in ESTES Park, CO.

The other was a little beauty salon/spa I saw called, "Face Haven."  I took the words in idly as I went by, and then was like, Why does that have such a familiar ring to it?  Of course!  It's like SAFE HAVEN.

I have been having difficulty meeting up with my mate in america, in IM lately, due to the time difference, said what a bitch of an unsatisfactory situation it is, and meeting up with her is like seeing the Pope.

Hi Dev......

Hi Sue.  Yes it is a bitch of an unsatisfactory situation.

sure enough

I, against all my better judgment, have taken up saying "yes ma'am" when on the phone with airlines or what have you customer service type women. The ALWAYS respond positively and once got an upgrade. Seems the semi-sexist term of endearment still works wonders!

I think that's a nice idea, HerrKaiser. And I don't find it sexist, not even semi! I wouldn't try it with "little darlin," though!  :laugh:
