    I'll start:
    1)he got to his feet- he stood up
    2) Watch out for her temper- she packs a mean punch- she can get nasty and might hurt you
    3)I wouldn't have it any other way- I wouldn't want it to be any different
    4)he was a good sport about my kissing bet too- he didn't mind me kissing him or someone else for a bet
    5)Why don't you tell me you had a thing with josh.- had a relationship
