The word “like” is ruined.
It sets my teeth on edge when kids over use “like” as an idiom. “That’s like, awesome. And then he was like ‘duh’, so I was like…” grr… I can’t even continue that example.
I had a friend who had hung a sign that says “When you use the word “Like” this way, it’s called an idiom. Do you really want to sound like an idiom?” I … uh… enjoy, this saying.
To top it off, everything on the internet has a freakin “Like” button. …this blog included. I feel sorta bad for the word “Like”. It’s gotta be awfully tired. It does a lot of work, don’t you think? It must get worn out.
