Literally, no big deal

“…Tom was literally rolling in wealth…” — Mark Twain, Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 1876.

(And the OED cites still earlier uses. Yes, the OED describes the usage as ‘colloquial.’ They are correct. One should only use the word in this manner when and where colloquial usages are appropriate. However, this is not a new usage.)

I have not always felt this way.
