How Do I Respond to This?

As the phone call ended she said "Have a big one."

What does that mean?

What is she referring to? Was it a slip of the tongue or intentional. Is this the newest fad in greetings and salutations. Is it similar to cool, groovy, awesome or tubular. Does my ignorance show my age. Am I just not cool enough to get it.

Maybe it is nothing. It probably is. Whatever, it threw me for a moment.

Doobie? I guess you have to know the speaker.

Those are as good as any ideas I have.

Huh. Well I'm 24, so I'd like to think I am reasonably close in age to people who are actually "cool" and I have never heard anyone say "Have a big one." Are you sure she didn't say "Have a good one?" Because I say that all the time and I think it makes sense?

No, it was have a big one. My ears are still good.

Interesing. Maybe have a big night out? Have a big laugh? Have a big day? Who knows. I also thought it was 'have a good one.'

Who knows what the girl was doing when she said that?

Sarah,

I like have a big laugh.

Zeruel,

Sorry, it wasn't a webcam so I can't answer that.

PG,

That is as good as any explanation I have heard.
