Around 1960, my parents went to Europe for a month. They came back joking about the UK tour guide who said, "Now, here's the drill," before laying out the "SHED-jule." That became part of the family usage from then on. They said Italian waiters would set down the food, make an open-handed here-it-is gesture toward it, and say, "So!" I still do that sometimes.
