    Don't use it in essays -- of course not -- but you'll hear it. Once you get past the age of 8 or so, you do realize it's not standard (nor is having more than one "best" anything) but you do it because it's fun. The same way I use "ain't."
    I guess girls will be girls. Have you ever heard a man use it?
