canucks expressions

there are three expressions that stick to my mind whenever i talk to canadians from ontario:

1. ‘honest to God’

i dont know if its really a common expression, i used to always hear grammie saying that… like one time, i overheard her talking to somebody:

honest to God, kwan is really a born caring person…

then bossing also used that expression whenever he talks about something.

2. ‘you know what’

this one’s very common to younger generations… i think even Americans use this one… i hear it from the judges of American Idol.  i always have this smile whenever people say this phrase to me, for example:

you know what, just leave it there

duh, as if i dont know… can you read the word ‘stupid’ on my forehead…

but you know what i am using it now… without even realizing that i do… lol

3. ‘eh’

this is the canada’s signature expression… you know you are talking to a canadian if  they end their statement or question with ‘eh’…

its a fine weather today eh?

i’ll try to use the three expressions:

honest to God, you know what… i think i am learning how to use them… ala eh!
