Sir, we have an 18 pixel requirement here in the Pub...
"You shred it, wheat!"
Which, to me, is more palatable than "I mean".
It's a rhetorical question for emphasis and is not meant to be answered.
Does this make me the Grammar SS?
Don't you use 'take off' to mean imitate in the US?
I can't stand the phrase.
Which one ?
I can't stand it so much, I'm not even gonna say it. Know what I mean?
Oh, I thought you mean "SO".
I've noticed a marked decreased in its use but it's like poison ivy rash. I don't want to call attention to it because it might flare up again.
I would, however, like to see a revival of 'ginchy' as an adjective to express approval, praise, etc.
Usually in noun form here.
I know, right?
When people use "SO" in a sentence, text message, or e-mail, and don't capitalize it..
that drives me crazy for about 10 seconds trying to figure how many words they left out to make this an intelligible thought.
Aha - interesting.
"Take off you hoser."
Translated from the original Canadian.
That's "Take me on".
What I get from this thread is, the East Coast is decades behind the West Coast.
