If someone could tell me what zei-gezunt means id really appriciate it, thanks.
As in "gesundheit"--German/Yiddish for "health".
It's probably useful to note that, depending on delivery, the phrase can be used in two ways, or at least was in my family. It can be either a warm farewell, or a somewhat sarcastic response to a plan, sort of like a Yiddish "yeah, whatever."
I agree with Jill. I remember my grandmother saying it and only in the sarcastic way. -- PS -- Are you Jill from Jill & Deven?
Yes, while she might not want to own up to it, she is the Jill from & Deven.
And i am the S from those '70s hitmakers, S & the BKs. FDR/WW rules!! :)
Yeah, I knew that. Jill didn't. I filled her in.
