    And of course…

    And of course. I do love this expression. I’m sure it’s appeared on other snippets on this site, but this is the first time I’m really noticing it. It is very different from the English “of course” although

    Found this site sharing the meaning. But they don’t dive into WHY it means that. I love the origin of idioms and expressions. For instance, I recently read that the word “selfie” is of Australian origin. However, the Australian dictionary excludes it from the list of 11000 Australian expressions… It’s just too global now.

    “Very Sure”, almost like a comical “Most Certainly!”

    And most certainly, this makes me love the expression even more.
