Subject: "it's been a slice . . ."
I don't know anything about the phrase "it's been a slice . . . ", but I can't
help noticing that it bears a striking resemblance, both structurally and seman
tically, to other phrases that I've used/heard/wondered about: "it's been grea
t"; "it's been real"; and so forth. Could one have spawned the others? Surely
all this is not one large linguistic coincidence?
