    One day

    This phrase is used when you are being sarcastic, as to your wishful thinking. It can also be used in place of ''sigh.''

    Sure, let's quit our jobs right now, and backpack through Europe. One day....

    Those were innocent times. Easy to hitchhike .

    Lol, I remember hitching a ride in a VW beetle and the guy drove 10 km in 3rd gear, until I told him. I forgot the slang word he used, but it wasn't pretty.

    Though he was happy I saved him a lot of gas.....

    ''milk in first''

    When you habitually pour milk/cream into your coffee first, before you pour the coffee. I can't say I've ever done that.

    Few times come across "scientifically speaking" before going down the stupidity hole

    I propose we speak

    COMMONSENSEFULLY

    when the subject has nothing to do with science

    "actually"
    it is not very new but it is fairly new
    much the same as saying "really" in reply to something or noting something to define it as having more significance
    it will likely not take as a common catch phrase. i suspect probably because of the hard sounding consonant.
    softer sounding words catch on a lot more or words relating to sex.

    like
    boom chick-a-wow-wow
