We are all guilty of beating a word (or a few words) to death in our daily lives. Those words that seem to flow so easily in conversation, text messages, and blog posts that we sometimes just can't quit saying.
(sometimes all 3 together "like yeah, totally" - I make myself cringe)
so (or soooooo)
sure (sometimes instead of you're welcome - bad, rude habit)
freaking (I don't say THE f-word, and use this as a replacement)
shit (pretty much the only "swear word" I use, and I sure do use it often)
Words I never, ever say (some are not even words, most I feel too old and uncool to pull off correctly, others are just weird to me)
epic (when we start using this to describe everything - like epic nap - then epic is no longer epic)
awesomesauce (I will use it as 2 words, sometimes together, like "jalapeno yogurt dip makes an awesome sauce for sandwiches")
totes (kind of committed to totally - see above)
moist (just makes me think eww)
perhaps (too fake, give me maybe)
(the two above are used by my husband regularly. In his defense, he did grow up in Southern CA in the 80's)
hubby (speaking of him)
interwebs or internets (or adding an 's' or 'z' to the end of things or a 'the' in front of things, like 'the intenets')
What words do you overuse? not use?
I really need to quit all of my list.
