I don't like the expression "I'll be damned!"

It has always bugged me.

When a UU says it, I've started to say "You're a bad Universalist."

Now people say it around me less.

That's good.

Or they might just be Restoration Universalists, rather than the "Death and Glory" Universalists.

You could always check by asking, "How long?'

Point to the jester!

I don't use the phrase often. But I do use it.

Probably less often than I used to, years ago. I hadn't thought about it, but I'll bet that I started to use it less after a friend replied "Yeah, but it'll wear off."

It was, no doubt, used for some trivial thing, and thus the snarky remark. I hadn't thought of it as displaying an incipient Universalism.
