Just curious...
Oh, it's definitely "tickled". Um, the other word refers to ... well, let's just say, "number one".

I just took a quick look at these (I'll delve a bit more when I've got some more time) and they seem to be better than the ones I've found in the past. Thank you.

I saw that. But I also encountered Tinkled pink and I could not find a meaning for it. Hence my question. :-)

Oh. Well, I do believe that the "correct" phrase is "tickled". Not sure that I've ever heard it another way. Rusty probably has a website.........

According to Merriam-Webster :

Main Entry: 2chuff Function:intransitive verb Etymology:imitativeDate:1914 : to produce noisy exhaust or exhalations : proceed or operate with chuffs <the chuffing and snorting of switch engines — Paul Gallico>

Chileno, there's no panting (jadear) involved I can assure you .

Tinkled pink and thrilled to death are good AmE equivalents.

My reaction precisely laepelba.

Never knew that one Rusty - the "little mint balls" bit. No te acostarás sin saber una cosa más.

I think it's kind of got a self-satisfied tinge to it. Tickled pink with self-satisfaction.

Agree!
@Chileno: I meant tickled pink! I mistyped it.

I understand, however, after I saw that definition, I thought that somehow you were stating you were left without breath... But I failed to mention it.

Total, nunca falta, si es por jadear o que darse sin aliento...

Anyway, thank you Rusty and laepelba.

Today I learnt about tinkling...
