You know the routine.  Some one says “have a nice day” and then you need something polite to respond back with.  In those circumstances I prefer the word, likewise.In print the word has seen a steady decline in popularity since the 1800s.Screen Shot 2018-11-29 at 9.48.38 PM.pngI personally enjoy this word because in part because of its uniqueness.  Not only is it not used very often, but it’s a mirror to the sentiment being offered.  It’s perfect for most situations.  Give it a try.
