Is there anybody olde enough to remember the phrase "Jinx on a Coke!"? It was used when two (2) people said the same thing at the same time. Usually, early teen kids, most often boys.....when it happened they would slug each other and say "Jinx on a Coke!".
Was I dreaming? Or, did my early teen neighborhood slip off into some space warp? The other day, Katie and I said something together and I said, "Jinx on a Coke!" She looked at me and said something like WTFAYTA?
Thank you, I'll have another.....Saturday Night Live first came out when I was in my early 30's. Many phrases became hip because of that program and many stayed with us. I still use "Never mind!", spoken in a little girlish tone (as in Rosanna Rosanadana).
Thank you, I'll have another.....Another phrase from my youth that has stuck with this Bear was from the great movie, WOODSTOCK. Remember the scene where a young Arlo Guthrie is talking on stage about the New York State Thruway being closed? He used the phrase, "Lotta freaks!".
I know that there are others.....I will have to give my younger brother a buzz and see if he can recall some.
What say you?
Bear (Jinx On A Coke!)
