Here is another grammatical trend I am betting you haven’t noticed but, once you do, you’ll hear it everywhere. I hear it in restaurants all the time.
I say, I’d like a cup of coffee, please.” The server asks, “Did you want cream?”
I reply “yes” but in my head I am sarcastically responding, “Yes, I DID and I still DO.”
When did we move from “Would you like” to “Did you want?”
Yes, I did want fries with that and, once that burger comes off the grill, I am pretty sure I will still want them.

No, I didn’t want fries with that. I wasn’t hungry then. I do want them now though!
This blog looks like a lot of fun Monica. I grew up mixing Spanish and English words together in all kinds of incomprehensible ways so maybe I’ll learn a few things about the English language.
I am enjoying these, Monica…this last one made me laugh…this is the way I start my day…with you blog…mahalo…D
