We say it in America… in the midwest anyway, I don’t know if they say that on the coasts
We know it on the West coast, but we think of it as something somebody from Wisconson would say
lol being I’m a Texan from Northern Illinois, whose family just moved to Wisconsin… I fit the bill.
Definitely say it in WV.
I went up on top of the ridge with my grandfather to look at the 3-foot high anthills he told me about. I just had to stand next to one for a picture. He took a while to focus, etc. and…well, I had ants in my pants. Literally unfortunately. We could use that blue Aardvark from the Pink Panther cartoons…
They say it in the Southern United States (i.e.: Georgia, N. & S. Carolina, Tennesse, Florida, and Alabama) as well. Not sure too much about Mississippi and Louisiana as I’ve never lived in those two states.
