FOVERVER AND EVER/FOREVER AND A DAY Hi Guys, Well, It seems silly of me for asking so many question just in 3 days, though, I've been reading and watching a lot of books and movies just to learn and improve my English skills. I think I'm doing it well. So, let's go to the first question. What's the difference between FOVERVER AND EVER and FOREVER AND A DAY. E.g. I'll love my Mom forever and ever. I think this one is correct. How about this one below: E.g. I'll love my Mom forever and a day. Whether the 2rd examples is correct or not, I'd like someone to explain me more about this sentence. How to use, examples and if they're interchangeable. "FOVERVER AND EVER/FOREVER AND A DAY" I've already heard someone saying to his friend: Berceles, how you been? It's been FOREVER AND A DAY since I last saw you! Of course I undestood him, but stayed the doubt. I have a lot of question, but for now I'm done. I hope you help. Thank you in advance!

I suppose "and a day" is a bit more silly and casual. Usually "for ever and ever" is talking about actual eternity, while "forever and a day" is often an exaggeration that really means "a long time" or "too long." So if you believe in an eternal afterlife, you might say that you expect to live for ever and ever. If I wanted to buy something incredibly expensive, I might say "I could save enough money for that eventually, but that would take forever and a day!"

They have the same meaning. They are just expressive ways of saying forever.
