Hehehe, never offensive, Mike. It's more of a language idiom that you and I are so
fond of. :) "Where are we at", is a phrase typically used to indicate a
location. Sure, it is used in the exact same context as you used it -- as an
indication of status, a milestone. It's just I hadn't heard it used
that way for a while. :) So yes, file it away amongst the "like" and "to" phrases.
