Really? I associate it with this very sweet tender kid's book: Guess How Much I Love You, to ultimately describe to a child how much a parent loves him.

Me, Type A? Maybe - I'm not done analyzing it yet.

For me, instead of asking to repeat something, saying "what happened?" My gut reaction is to respond "What happened is I said something to you but you were staring at your phone. As usual." wink
I've just writed a wrong.

I find it astonishing that people are OBSESSED with everything now. Cracks me up and annoys me at the same time

There are a lot of words I will never (or likely never) use from new generations as well as the ones before me. I try to stay fresh but really my world exists around what I learned when it was the present some years ago. I love watching and listening to all the new lingo but I stay out of it. Sounds odd coming out of my mouth so I stick to what I know. I love the way language changes and it is interesting to see people deal with it.

I just watch and smile. It makes for a sweet thread to read though. This has been fun!
