Grannyism

Tickled to Death
This phrase didn’t sound so macabre when Granny used it. “Tickled to death” replace “thrilled” or “ecstatic” in Granny’s lexicon. Some examples:
“Ron primed the pump. I’ll be thrilled to death to take a shower again.”
“I’d be thrilled to death if the ol‘ fart calls B-12, and I win the pot.”
“Pay the Man, again? I’ll bet you’re thrilled to death to beat your old Granny out of all her nickles.”
Encantado,
