A Word I Love

When I moved to Minnesota, this word became a part of my vocabulary.

Uff da is a Scandinavian phrase that can be an expression of surprise, astonishment, exhaustion, relief or even dismay.  It is such a versatile word!

“Uff da – that was a difficult test!”

“Uff da – never thought I would make it up the hill”

What is your favorite catch-all word?
