    Exclamation "Let's" usage

    Please,

    What's the most appropriate answer to "Let's go dancing." or to any Let's... (making suggestion)?

    Love, Dani.

    Love, Dani.
    There are many.

    In favour:
    Yes/Fine/Great/Good idea/Yes, let's ...and many more

    Dubious:
    Well..../Maybe/I suppose it might be fun/There's something to be said for the idea but ......and many more

    Against:
    No/Certainly not/Why?/Bad idea/What are you - crazy? ...and many more



    b

    PS And this one - I think - is British only: "let's not"/"don't let's" (maybe one of these is OK in Amer Eng...)
