Like, Stop Saying Like.

These posters tell us that we all sound stupid because we say this word. Do we even know we use this unnecessary discourse marker? How kind of their designer to have our best interests in mind. Some of us don't and are okay with that. (click to enlarge, they are worth the read)

Wow, like I say like a lot. Not, like, this much, but like its quite a bit.

Ahee...

I think I go through phases with like.

But I have never said the first one.

That's, like, funny and stuff.

I used to make fun of girls who said "like", calling them Valley Girls...remember Clueless...best movie of '95. But yeah, like now I say it, like, more than anyone I know. It really bums me out and I must kick the habit. Meredith, in the spirit of our conversation the other nite, I hereby challenge you to a "like" off!

Mere! Do not! I reapeat! Do NOT encourage Steve's "like" issue. He does say it a great deal! He'll never be employed if he keeps it up! Fortunately we have almost a year to BREAK him of the habit before he must join the real world.

Hi Meredith,

This is Cory writing from Ottawa. I'm not sure if you still remember me. Things are well in Ottawa.

What are you doing now that school is over? I see that you're still in Winnipeg. Anyway, you can get back to me coryul@hotmail.com
