I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it. (Groucho Marx)
can we say " I have had a absolutely wonderful evening, but this wasn't it
Hee hee hee. Groucho cracks me up. I'm waiting for a chance to use this line now.
This is such an excellent example of how a well constructed sentence can be a bit poor grammatically but so very witty that the grammar can be overlooked. Groucho was indeed a master.
