I used it in this context to show that she is being "a bit of a fool" for someone i.e that she can't help she's falling for someone (him). I sometimes use slang to make a caption shorter, cuter, more direct. I try not to do it too often, for the reason you highlight and also because slang and puns, which I also like to use, do not always translate readily. I hope I've explained it clearly.Best wishes,Bill Reply 3 Pipas - 26/11/2015 @ 7:51 AM Yes you did.Thanks!And let me tell you that I love your "love is". Everyday I have to read it :)Thank you for writing it!!!!Kisses (in Portuguese "beijinhos") Reply Add a New Comment Name: Email/URL (Optional): Comment: Enter the code: Cancel Comment Guidelines: No HTML is allowed.
