Daily Lesson 6

Substitutes for "Okay"
Instead of saying "okay", "sure thing", "you got it" or some other modern 
phrase to convey assent, try some of the following substitutes:
    "Right willingly"
    "Gladly will I do so"
    "Aye, milord/milady"
    "Certainly, your Grace/Excellency"
    ''Tis as good as done"
    "'Twill be my pleasure"
    "Most assuredly"

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
Slipp'd the hour - late; past the appointed time
    "'Tis full dark, and the Moon is up; we've slipp'd the hour of meeting."

Nunc est bibendum.
