Hey I have a new follower!

I don't often mention this because there are really so few of you, and I generally gain and lose a couple over the course of a year, but I do notice, and I do go to your blogs (If I am not already following you). I generally believe you all follow me because I either know you IRL, or am following your blog. When a new follower pops up (and I notice), I visit the person's blog(s). So my new follower posted this image on a blog, and I loved it because this is a pet peeve of mine:
This is such a pet peeve that every time one of The Boys or their friends or classmates uses this term, I ask for clarification.

Example:
The Oldest: Mom, there was like this great thing at school today!
J9: So, it wasn't actually a great thing, it was only something that was similar to a great thing? Or was it not really great and just a good thing?

This drives each one of them crazy, and causes them to not say "like" inappropriately.

I totally know what you mean! I'd rather gouge my eyes out with a spork than sit there and listen to someone say the word like after every third word or so. Happy Friday! :)

Ironic .. just my humble opinion but, children don’t learn to speak stupidly ..until they want to fit in a peer group .. then they overuse stupid expressions ..until they outgrow them because, outside their peer group, they stop sounding credible.

Cheers ..!
