Just how excited are you?
C's English has been getting progressively better, so it's been a while since I've had a funny story to share from English Weekend. And maybe it's the mood I was in, but I was busting a gut the other day after hearing him sigh and say from the other room "It really used to be a lot easier to get into my pants!"
But that reminds me of something else - when I moved to France, I was told to avoid using the verb "exciter" because it had sexual connotations. However ten years later, I'm hearing it used on a pretty regular basis in the American sense, ie as I am excited to do XX or to see YY. I've heard it used this way on the radio, on TV and at work, which makes me wonder if its usage is changing. Has anyone else noticed this? I know languages continually evolve, and maybe this is just one more example of that?
