Top o' the mornin' to ya! Thought o' the mornin' for ya!

A Ponderable for y'all:

Why does anyone say "You're kidding!"? It's used farrrrr out of proportion to people actually kidding (though I can imagine hilarity resulting if reporters all start saying it during a politician's press conference). Maybe the someone-taking-time-to-tell-you-something should tip people off that that someone probably isn't kidding.

Seriously. I think about this stuff.

(I'd also go on about the phrase "pretty much," but I've already done my blathering about that...)
