After school today my partner teacher asked me if I say, “Oh my goodness,” a lot. She was grading stories her kids had written about if a dinosaur came to visit the school. She teaches a bilingual class, so all the writing was in Spanish. One of her kids wrote: ‘If a dinosaur came to school, Ms. Hubers would scream, “Oh my goodness, Dios mio!” and faint.’ It was all in Spanish, except for the “oh my goodness” part. I was also drawn with a big flower in my hair.
I do, in fact, say, “Oh my goodness”, a lot!
