Yippee Ky Yay

Bruce Willis.  Die Hard.  I like Bruce Willis and I liked this movie.  Just enough plot to support the action and of course things blowing up.  What more could you ask for?

That word, yippee, isn't used much anymore.  Although I don't remember using it much, even as a child.  You do see it in old movies, usually from children getting something they REALLY wanted.

I do remember using it as a teenager.  Usually in reply to something my parents were planning for ALL of us and our response was a sarcastic "yippee" most often accompanied by a twirl of the index finger into the air.

But I found myself thinking this word enthusiastically today as I felt elation at the realization that I would see my kids in 3 short days!

What more could you ask for?

  5. My son uses Yippee and Hooray when excited about things. It's nice to hear, and reminds me that I haven't spontaneously used either in a long time.
