Overheard; a guy describing his sandwich:

Guy1: You know, it had this, like, big, big…
Guy2: Slices of bread?
Guy1: Yes, yes, it had this big piece of bread and was stuffed with, you know, like… what does Popeye eat to get strong again?

At which point I burst out laughing right behind them, and then scurried away, embarrassed.

    Hehe, that IS embarrassing.
    Me, I have this habit of unknowingly grinning, when I recall some funny incident…invites a lot of stares when one’s is walking by oneself. :D

    Nice. What really catches my attention though, is the repeated ‘likes’ I keep hearing in such conversations. I find this particularly common among natives here. Every sentence has to be referring to a similar phenomenon.

    PS: Yea, literally another attempt to bring back the fun times on this journal ;)

    Between this post and the last, I’m going to turn your life into a sitcom.

    anonymiss: Oh how I recall doing that. The odd chuckle to myself or grin, and the inevitable curious stares that soon followed. It doesn’t happen any more—I’m afraid I’ve become all morose and ponderous, even when I just move around.

    And I am not certain I see the typo you’re referring to. But I’m more curious as to why you decided you needed to excuse yourself for it? :) Pray tell.

    pUl|: It wasn’t supposed to be so obvious that I’m grasping at straws in order to revert to the “fun times.” This post, like the last one, was purposefully embellished—for instance, the ‘like’s were added for effect—I’m sad to say.

    Michelle: Please do, please do! I can’t wait. I presume this would go with some privileges, like a front-row seat at the live audience?

  9. pundit says:

    Céline: Merci beaucoup. J’aimerais visiter. :)

    Front row? Sure, something like that. I imagine some royalties might be involved? I have no idea. At the very least, you’d be welcome at the craft-services table, lol.

    Welcome at the craft-services table? Sign me up!

    (Super-secretly, that’s all I really wanted.)

    “when one’s is walking by oneself.” :D

    Got it, finally! Boy am I retarded.

    the funny thing is…Until the mid 1980’s, the term “Like” only referred to how you felt about an object. Then came the “Valley Girls.” Valley Girls was a fad that was created for television in the 80s starring Sarah Jessica Parker. Their language variations caught on quickly by teenagers of the times, and eventually became second nature for a lot of people.
