La palabra del día

Today I spoke to a fine gentleman from Puerto Rico, who, upon my impartment of good news, exclaimed "¡formidable!"

I deem this a most excellent ejaculation and shall deploy it with cautious abandon.

Yeah, cool. I have heard this same exclamation and have intended (at the time) to incorporate it into my own vocabulary of mannerisms; but it never seems to work out. Maybe will come more naturally to a Spanish-speaker.

I was thinking the same thing. (Without the affection, though, despite my fondness for you.)

will: I appreciate the fondness. I think it sounds great in French, too.

neo: you're doing the Lord's work here. And cracking me up, to boot.

For the record, I read this as i-formidable the first time I read this post.
