I seem to remember that too.

Of course, all chocolate bars were bigger in the 80s than they are now, I believe.

Creme Eggs were the size of a hen's egg, and Wagon Wheels were at least twice the size they are now.

As in "Dude, don't be such a dink"

Possibly need to be a Main-ah to get it though.

Also like Moxy.

WTF? I have never heard 'dink' in the US. And, I have never even heard of Main-ah before and I have lived in the US since birth.

Like I said, it must be a Maine thing

Though Main-ah is pretty common for describing the folks up in the nipple state.

As for words, I really don't like them, but do find using them an awful lot - Dude and Awesome...

Such as Dude, them Skanks getting beat lastnight, awesome

But it was seeing A-Rod bomb in the 9th and Big Nose thinking he almost got a winning homer

If it wasn't at the top of the list of words that I detest, I would say last night's game was an absolute bummer. What the heck do I watch for the rest of October? The only solace is that Fenway has been quiet since September . . .
