The other night, I was paying for something and opened my wallet excited to find cash. Those of you who know me know that I generally always pay with my debit card because I am the Cashless Wonder.
So I opened my wallet and there was a $10 bill. I said outloud to myself, "I have cash! Check me out!" But since I was talking to myself, I was kind of mumbling. Jackie started cracking up because she thought I said, "I have cash! Checkmate!" After laughing about that for a few minutes, we decided that "Checkmate!" is going to be the new catchphrase expressing a serendipitous realization.
Examples might include:
Checkmate! I got a whole case of coconuts for $1.99!
It's raining puppies! Checkmate!
It's NOT Gonorrhea? Checkmate!
See? Try it out, spread it around!
