Well, so far it's Wednesday, but no Brokie-isms yet.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I went to a party tonight for the new newspaper that is starting in Denver, the Colorado Sun. I used several Brokeisms.

Also, my older grandchildren spent the night last night and I had several opportunities to tell the 7-year-old that he was going too fast and it was time to put the brakes on.

I'd love to hear more about that!

Getting ready for an all-girl weekend retreat in the mountains, my friend texted me that she just had a third of a bottle of whiskey, so I texted her back about the "need for a lot of whiskey" up there.  :laugh:

But when we got to the yurt, I ended up not having any whiskey. There was plenty of wine to choose from, we were playing a lot of Mexican Train Dominoes so I had to keep my wits about me, and I was worried about the effects of alcohol with the elevation. Jack or Ennis, I'm not!

Did you look around? Maybe there was a whiskey spring up there somewhere.

I have't remembered to attempt to make any Brokieisms. LOL  I must be slipping!

I used "My folks was ..." in conversation ("My folks was middle-class"). However, I said it to a Brokie (Amanda!) in an IM on Facebook, so that doesn't count for the challenge.

I find one of the hardest parts of delivering a successful Brokieism is using improper grammar around people who know that I know the correct grammar.

Try saying it with an accent, that way, you might get away with it, except if they think you're making fun of them. Try a hillbilly accent, a Texas accent or maybe even a Wyoming accent!
