Oh I don't know - 'madam' suggests that I'm as old as the hills - at least 'a madam' would suggest that I still had a bit of life left in me!

There's an elephant in the room - in my experience, there never is.

Step up to the plate - I usually sit down to mine.

Chow down - When I sit down to my plate of food, I just eat.

Mahoosive - eh?

Gawjuss - Only applicable to young girls posting 'selfies' on Facebook to get attention.

Apsolutely - no it isn't.

babymother - Only on a London council estate.

Difficult to resist this thread which makes interesting reading, but have resisted so far! However, heard a word yesterday which has irritated me for some time and comes, originally, from the US motor sports community I think. It's 'from the getgo' or from the start in our language. Now MPs and sports commentators are all using it here. I don't know why I find it so irritating but it does all seem to come from the US where business, sport or the military all have to have new phrases to fit their culture.

Sadly, these words in business seem to be a way to dress up or disguise old ideas in a new form. Nothing much has changed over the years (technology aside) and giving something a new label seems to be the only solution to selling ideas or encouraging enthusiasm. I did laugh out loud once when listening to a presentation peppered with business-speak when a colleague whispered about the presenter 'another graduate of the School of Yee-Har!'

On American airlines they announce that 'we will be taking off momentarily'.

Seems to me crossing the Atlantic could be difficult in that case.
