Default Childhood expressions/figures of speech

I just said, "Later, gator" to someone and was kinda bummed he didn't respond with, "After while, crocodile." Does anyone else remember this expression? We used to say it as kids all the time. It sounds so corny now. But I still enjoy it. What other expressions from your childhood do you still enjoy and use (other than cool, which is still very much in circulation)?

Well I'm not too far removed from my childhood (I'm 23), but my mom texted me yesterday and I replied, "Okie dokie artichokie." I'm sure there are others that I still use, but they escape me right now...

I sometimes still use Nighty night, sleep tight. Ups-a-daisy, oopsy-daisy, or whoops-a-daisy (it just depends). I am not above double or triple dog daring someone, if given a good reason to. People are still lame. Things that are fantastic will occasionally get called 'the most' or 'so very'. Thank you Heathers for the last one.

Did you just say "Later, gator?" Because that would not trigger the response from me. Now if someone says, "See you later, alligator" Then, yup

Really? Hmmm, see, there's no distinction to me.

Same here - I'd need the whole prompt to complete the phrase correctly.

We use it all the time down here, partly because we have alligators in every lake & also because of University of Florida's sports teams.

C'mon, EVERYBODY knows it's "Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite"!

That got kind of creepy when NY had its infestation a couple of years ago, though.

How about:
I got dibs!
or
That's a gyp!

I don't actually still say this but I remember "cross your heart, hope to die, stick a needle in your eye" being a big one everytime anyone promised something.

And also "pretty plz w/ a sugar and a cherry on top" if you were begging.

And if you were singing "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer," you had to add a bunch of other academic subjects after "you'll go down in history..." LOL

And "I'm rubber you're glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks onto you," when someone was talking ish to you. LOL

Those were huge at my school too. By some sad turn of events, I can only recall fast food related ones. Double time...

Big Mac, filet of fish, quarter pounder, french fries, icy coke, thick shakes, sundaes and apple pies.

Freakin' McDonalds.

*Rubble Rubble* They ruined us.

This makes me want to push a boy down and run away in my kitten heels. Glad you started it, TNB. Good times.

I used to think these words/phrases were correct when I was little and sometimes I still say them without meaning to.

"Spisghetti"

"Polish nail"

"You'd better be lucky that..." (a combo of "You'd better be glad that...." & "You're lucky that...")

"That's what you forget."

"A little b**** more....." (Hey, it all sounded the same to me...)


I also still call my mom, mommy. I'm the only one in my family that does it, though. When I saw this Starbucks ad about their new blonde roast, I had to smile.
