As soon as I get to Providence I want to go to the Garden Grill! I'm planning a trip as we speak. PRONTO! (another expression I should add to the list)

Maybe I should have specified the "boo" I was referring to, if I even spelled it right in the first place. Boo as in "my boo," a reference to a significant other. Yuck!

"Epic" is the worst.

"Epic" is truly awful. Especially the intonation people use when saying it.
