Absolutely. But it's hard to avoid those well-worn phrases sometimes. I find they slip in (not just those, but others too) when I'm not looking and take over my writing. Maybe it's because they're part of everyday language, but as writers, we should definitely try to rise above!
This is funny, Alison. We (my family) went to a restaurant recently and our waiter said "Absolutely!" after everything we said. "Can I get cheese on that?""Absolutely!""I'll have the chicken.""Absolutely!" "Can I bonk you on the head?""Absolutely!"
