Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.
Every now and then, one of my offspring tells me that some of the things I say are very old-fashioned. I reply that it’s not surprising, since I AM kind of old-fashioned.
I hear, often, my mom’s words coming out of my mouth. For instance, would say she was “tickled pink” over something.
Another one she said was, “You’d better had!”
Strangely, I knew exactly what she meant.
Here’s how it worked:
“Linda, did you clean up your room?”
“Well, you’d better had!”
I have no idea how that would diagram. It certainly doesn’t fit into any sentence structure I know of. But the meaning was clear.
As my dad would say, “Well, I guess!”
