I wrote this, sometime between now and when school started.
Haha, yeah, like, lol, yeah, so, anyway… how many of these completely redundant words do we use everyday? Are we just running out of things to say? or has our language truly devolved THAT much?
I am going to go on a witchhunt to try and evolve our language or at least among me and my facebook/email/texting friends [note: since then I have changed my mind to evolve my part of the world into a positive place]. It’ll be a little harder to do that with people I am talking to because I can’t see their words. Yes I am a very visual person. Seeing the word written out helps a lot. The things that really truly bug me?
lol – First of all, what did that guy ever do to you? And you are drowning him? And you laughed out loud while you drowned him? Inexcusable.
Yeah… – You aren’t really interested in conversation? Are you boring enough that yeah is all you can come up with? I understand everybody has their off days and some people are naturally quiet but SERIOUSLY???
nothing much – This usually comes after the question ‘What’s up?’. Nuthin much, eh? Are you really so lifeless that you do nothing except stare at the wall? Just say you’ve done SOMETHING! “I had a bagel for breakfast”, ” I cleaned my room”, “Homework, homework, homework”.
K – k? just a k? I understand if you need to have an answer that they read it, but 9 times out of 10 when I get a k it was completely pointless.
*new text comes in*
Me: *whips out phone* :)
*reads text that just says k* :(
