Monday Madness - Words




Have you ever heard the saying "She is pretty until she opens her mouth?" The idea that once someone speaks, there intelligence (or lack of) will show thru. On the flipside, I've always been told that cursing is proof of someones lack of intelliegence...there are other ways to speak your mind without resorting to cursing.

Being a sailor - I can say I've probably used these choice words more often than not, however I try pretty hard to reserve them for occasions I just can't find the words to describe what I'm feeling. So what does this say about me?

Monday Madness - Words

1. Awesome
As in "Mom, I got an E in conduct today!" "That is totally awesome, you did really good." I used to hate this word, now I sound like a complete surfer dudette (who has never surfed!)

2. Right On
As in "Hey Kel, did you know lunch is free today?" "Right on!" Yeah, can you see me with the rockin' finger sign waving in the air...80's hair and all? HA, nope not a rocker babe either, but I speak the lingo.

3. Cool
As in "I just bought the new Apple iPhone." "Wow, that's Cool." Um, can't say much about this one, this word has been a permanent fixture in my vocabulary for MANY, many years...don't think it's going anywhere.

4. Seriously
As in "Geeky boy finally had a date." "Seriously...was she over 18?" Another one where I sound like I should be in my tweens or teens, but what can I say, I'm a Grey's Anatomy fan and it stuck!

5. Whaaaa??
As in "Did you hear, they are downsizing?" "Whaaaaa? How did you find out?" I know, I know - all I'm missing is the T but when I say the word, I just can't manage to get it on the end of the word....my true colors are shining thru. hehe

What words are a staple in your vocabulary?

I never realized that I use "Look..." as an introduction to ALMOST everything I say...until my son started doing it!

I used to start my stories with..."This one time..." But my coworkers cured me of that when they would ALWAYS respond..."at bandcamp?" :)

Kellan said...

I use the word "cool" way more often than is - cool!

Take care - Kellan

AS Mark Twain said, "Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer."

Sweet, dude, awesome, whatevah. I'm sure there are more if I had my girlfriends here to tell me! :)

Aleta said...

"So" as in "That is SO cool."

"Cool" - use that too much

Greg uses "Dude" and I use "Girl" when we're talking to friends.

About the cuss words... My Mom rarely cusses, but when she does, she'll look at me and say, "It was appropriate." - If the situation calls for it, then it's earned, I guess. Lol.

All of yours except "right on" and "whaaa". And, Sweet! and "Oh my Jesus."

I say 'loser' a lot when I call my friends. (Like hey loser, what are you doing)

I also say "Weeeeellllll" a lot.

And "Seriously?" And "Good lord."

And I say "Neat" instead of cool.

OHmommy said...

Ha... Kellan does say COOL all the time.

Good question Kel. I saw AWESOME all day long. Seriously, I do.

I say Nice...but like this "Niiiiiiice", I say seriously too...but I do curse a lot and now that you wrote it, does it really make me look unintelligent? Hmm. But my choice word is F%&%in' A!
