My guy will say "to make a long story even longer" or "to make a long story go on forever"

I hate it when people say something "goes south" when there is a problem!

Oh, um... Never mind!

Just teasing of course (I have been known to say that one myself!).

these don't bug me as I find regional words and phrases fascinating but I was with a group of Brits last night for a company going away party and I had to explain "getting out of Dodge", "fit to be tied", and "in the hole"-------and then sat with a group of Kazakhs who could see no difference between the singular " man" and the "plural" men-------I finally conceded that English was a hard language wasn't it?

The things that I say bug me more than anything else and I have a very bad case of hoof in the mouth disease-------stuff just falls out before I have a chance to think it over------I hear it's hereditary as my dad was notorious.........I'm working on it, though......but if you ask my personal opinion then that's a different matter........:):):)
