"Like the dickens" is one of my all-time favorite sayings. I mean, it's almost an officially adopted phrase in my family. In our home you would frequently hear sentences like, "That hurt like the dickens!" or "It's hot like the dickens outside." We'd also say "that's the dickens" in the most sincerely somber of tones if someone delivered bad news. Back in those days, I might have said, "Dang...that's the dickens" if someone had told me that Heath Ledger died or something.

To me, "like the dickens" is so awesome that I don't even want to ruin it for myself by looking up its origins (if you tell me, I will hunt you down and tickle you to death with a feather). And I'm the type of person who is inclined to research the origins of damn near anything and everything. See? It's such a badass phrase that it makes me defy my very own nature.

Anyway, I think I need to bring the "dickens" back and spread the love. It's time.
