 :D

That's a mixed double Brokieism! Wow. If it were figure-skating, you'd have a certain 10 for it!
Great, great one. Thanks for sharing Amanda :).

She meant to say Lynne. Although Amanda's really good at those Brokeisms too!! She's the one who suggested I go out and collect hail in my cowboy hat when we were lunching together at the Del Mar Crab House!! Those were the days...

Oh that is so so Brokie.....OMG only a Brokie would understand that straight away.... :o :o

That is so funny.

Cool, Lynne! Way to mix up your Brokieisms.

It's so gratifying to see that, more than three and a half years after this thread began, people are still using Brokieisms!  :D

I think it's near impossible not to...something about the meter and the multi-layered meanings make them irresistible when opportunity presents itself!

Two nonverbal Brokieisms:

My sons tossed me some keys. I wanted to catch them in a graceful, nonchalant Ennis way. Unfortunately, I was more of a Jack. (Only in a Brokie, BTW, would those words immediately summon screencap-like images.)

I have three sets of shirts-within-shirts hanging in my closet. They're not tributes to lost loves -- they're potential outfits I want to remember to wear sometime. But this feels like a Brokieish way to handle the outfit problem.

When I go off on one of my trips way out in the middle of nowhere, I'm in the habit of saying "See you Sunday, latest" and then dragging my scrawny ass back home the latest on Sunday that I can.  :-\

After reading what you said there, I decided to do my own "brokie" tribute for my dear husband who passed away in November.
The dress, which whenever I wore it, my hubby would say..."oh, I see you have my favourite dress on again"...I have had the dress for over 10 years.....it was the one I wore to his funeral........it now hangs on the hanger, under his favourite shirt, where they will remain forever.

I love this, Sue! A beautiful way to remember a loved one, Brokie style.
