A Dame Makes an Assertion
People who use archaic phrases that sound like they copied them from their fathers or from old Humphrey Bogart movies -- serious as a heart attack, I kid you not, you can take that to the bank -- use those phrases all the time. Which makes you think they use those phrases because they consciously think that using them says something important about them. There is a punchline here, but I haven't found it yet.
