A couple of years ago, my daughter (now a junior in high school) and her friends started using the phrase "s/he's all" to mean "s/he says" or "s/he said," when reporting a dialog. For example, an incident might go something like this: He's all, "Would you like to go?" And she's all, "I'll have to check my schedule." And he's all, "Let me know, okay?" Interestingly enough, my two older children have never seemed to acquire this usage. Have any of you heard this?
