In like Flynn?
or
In like Flint?


In like Flynn:

To be quickly and/or emphatically successful, usually in a sexual or romantic context.

Origin

in like flynn This phrase is commonly said to be a reference to Errol Flynn, the Australian film actor. Flynn was famous for his romantic swashbuckler roles in Hollywood films and for his flamboyant private life. His reputation as a hard-drinking, hell-raising ladies' man was apparently well justified, although it has doubtless been enhanced by his delight in playing up to his image. For instance, he entitled his autobiography - My Wicked, Wicked Ways and also did nothing to dispel the incredible but nonetheless widespread rumours as to the the size of his p*** and the number of women who had shared his bed. Flynn was acquitted in February 1943 for the statutory rape of a teenage girl.

The word in had been used with regard to success, good fortune or sexual conquest for some years prior to the 1940s.



In like flint:

1)In like flint is a term used to describe when one is in a very favorable position
2) One is going to have inter****** in a very lucky and speedious manner
3)One has just aquired special position by means of extreme luck


1) Dude, my dad works at the Kwik-E Mart, so I'm in like flint!
2)Man that chick digs you, your in like flint
3)I'm branch manager now, I'm in like flint!

I do believe "in like flint" originated from the James Coburn movies of the same name. Loosely based upon the James Bond movies, but far more entertaining IMHO...

I don't know that I can make either day this year. My daughter has her first ballet recital (never thought I'd say THAT!) on Sunday at 1pm and dress rehearsal on Saturday at one also. I'll try to get out for a couple of hours, but it's not looking good...

Well Paul, if you "am there" you're a little early!!! It doesn't start until the 6th of June. But, since you've promised to go, I'll be there also. Plan on being there both days ... that way I'll be sure to cross paths with Shawn.

Booked at the Hampton ... Mike, the AARP rate is cheaper than the kite fest rate ... now that you're over 50 you can take advantage of those rates .... he he he ...

Cheers,
Tom

I used the "over 50" rate for hotels on my drive back from California. The sad thing is, the check-in clerks didn't ask for proof of my age....

i'll try to make it. There is a graduation party one of those days... so i'm not sure that i can attend both days. Though i'd rather be flying, than saying, "Congrats on getting through 4 whole years of high school"... i've ditched enough family parties lately already... and Marla just may go for that giant rolling-pin! :roll:

Or maybe Star Trek--they're always having problems with temporal anomalies and the space-time continuum.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Naperville next week.
Have been busy remodling my home and improving my culinary skills.
I signed on as the Illinois demo chef for the "Big Green Egg" grill company and have been all over the Chicago area giving cooking demos.
