Is it Me?

I'm blogging over at Prairie Chicks Write Romance today about phrases I've misunderstood and said wrong or get perturbed when others say it wrong.

I'm using these phrases as examples:

- uh huh, uh uh, huh uh, nuh uh

- 'shaking your head, yes'

- ‘If that’s what you think, then you have another thing coming.’

- card shark

- spitting image


What about you? See anything you'd like to discuss on this list? Then head over to the Prairie Chicks and join our discussion. I'd love to read your take on it.

  1. My years as court reporting taught me that
    Uh-huh is a yes.
    Huh-uh is a no.

    Hmmm is an, "Is that a yes or a no???"

    Love you,

  2. Hello, my Inky sister... looks like we're on the same wave length here.

    You were a court reporter? You must have a passel of stories to glean from then. No wonder your writing is riveting. :)
