\TAHY-dingz\ , noun:
News, information, or intelligence: sad tidings.
Not long ago, I was discussing people’s trademark sayings with a friend. I know someone who can almost pull any corny saying off, because she’s confident and cool. When I was leaving my favorite people at work after a lovely lunch, I decided to try out a new saying. “See ya at 3,” they said. I replied, “Good tidings of comfort and joy…”
Not quite confident or cool enough to pull that one off.
