Have you ever said this IRL?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Often on movies or TV shows, women respond to offers or requests by saying : "I'd like that."

Does anyone really ever say "I'd like that"?

"Would you like to go for a walk?"
"I'd like that." :

"Wanna come up and see my etchings?"
"I'd like that." :

"Bud Lite?"
"I'd like that." :

I usually say "Huh?" while picking up one of the kids and blowing the hair out of my eyes....

I kinda do this only I usually end up choking on my hair because I accidentally breathe in instead of blow out........ I also, for some reason, often nearly drown myself while drinking because I forget to breathe through my nose and breathe through my mouth........ DH worries about me.

Not women, but DS and BF often answer with "I'd like that."

LOL the etchings line. I haven't heard that used in years. And usually by people a generation in front of me, lol.

No. I'm more of a "Sounds keen!" kinda gal. But I've always been accused of talking like a nutcase.

Yeah, I've been known to say that. But then again I can be a pompous English teacher at times, lol. So nevermind!

Hmm, I'm a bit concerned myself.


Are we talking in a dating sort of sense? Because I can't remember! Now a days, I usually just smile and say, "sounds like fun." or "are you kidding me. I've been chasing your children around all day and you want to do WHAT? Now get the kids to bed and we'll talk about it."

Yes, I say it.

I've said stuff like that, I think. I hit a point a log while ago when I realised I never actually displayed any enthusiasm about plans and actively decided to change it. So I tried to eliminate non-commital grunts and "oh... uh, okay, I guess..." from my vocab. So yeah, "Hey Kama, want to run to the corner store with me?" "That'd be great!"

I don't think I've ever said that.
post #15 of 47
Yes, I say it.
post #16 of 47
Nope.

When DH offers something I want, I respond with, "Well, what are you waiting for? HURRY UP!"

Kidding.
post #17 of 47
I say it a lot. More when people ask me if I want to do something or if they can do something for me than if I'm offered something.

Sure, and as I'm walking away I lazily trail my silk scarf behind me, eventually dropping it and tossing my cascading hair behind my shoulder as I turn my head to wink.












Oh wait. I cut my hair short immediately after ds was born and the cat unraveled my scarf.

I guess I don't.

Heh. No. My responses would more likely be:

"Would you like to go for a walk?"
"A walk? You're kidding, right?"

"Wanna come up and see my etchings?"
"Sure, let me just wipe this baby puke off my shirt first. Oh, wait. You better bring 'em downstairs. My two little ones don't do stairs too well."

"Bud Lite?"
"Nah, my nursling will be awake for another couple hours."
