Because the Ramones are awesome

SCENE: the street corner nearest the house, 6-ish Friday night. I'm walking to the cross street. A family is on the sidewalk: a mother at the corner, kids farther down the sidewalk.

Me: Add an "aye, oh." Gives it more pep.

Mother (grins): Aye! Oh! Let's go!

Me: Thank you.



(She did the accent well, too. Probably better than I did.)
