Actually...when greeting in the morning you can say this as the 1st person or as a reply to صباح الخير . You could even start with صباح الورد . It's not what I was taught, but my Egyptian husband said that's to simplify things for language learners. Perhaps someone will chime in regarding if that's just from certain dialects, or if that's widespread. Arabic has an alarming number of synonyms for lion, so there are probably multiple ways to mean good morning.
