Mopsy, I'm starting to question your medical credentials.



Initially you were like, "I'm going to say this thing ironically, as a joke," but now it's been years and you're still saying it and irony is dead, this is just a thing you say now, you sound like an rear end in a top hat and yet you cannot stop. I want to know all about the weird personal vernacular that you never meant to develop.
  • The first time I heard 'chicky nugs' I was horrified and yet here we are, with me consistently referring to them as chicky nugs
  • When my sister was a toddler she called it 'eye beam' instead of 'ice cream' and now twenty years later I have to stop myself from referring to ice cream as eye beam
  • One time to be obnoxious I asked my partner if they could get me a 'fresh pep' because my 'd pep' was out and, listen, we all know where this is going.

"WHY NOT DONE?" and "bigly" have crept into my lexicon, for better or worse.

"Carbons? Purge? What are you talking about?!"



"doggo", "fleek", and "clutch".

on almost the opposite tack i had a perfect opportunity to use the word 'syzygy' in kind of an important email a few weeks back and i ended up deleting it and reworking the whole phrase so i wasn't the guy using the word 'syzygy' in an email.

My ex and I were together when "bae" began its ascendancy and it went from ironic usage to unironic usage in alarmingly short order

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

For me, it's definitely "literally" in the sense of "figuratively".

"Literally" doesn't mean "figuratively", it's an intensifier. "My head figuratively exploded" and "my head literally exploded" aren't interchangeable, because "figuratively" is not an intensifier; a person hearing you say that would wonder why you felt the need to clarify that an impossible thing didn't actually happen. On the other hand, "my head exploded" and "my head literally exploded" are interchangeable; you could also use some other intensifier (eg. "loving") in place of "literally" and it still means the same thing.

You literally, and I do mean literally, knew what I meant, yet you wrote all this anyway.

"Literally means figuratively now" is a peeve of mine. It doesn't.

I wanna sing one for the cars
That are right now headed silent down the highway
And it's dark and there is nobody driving
And something has got to give


I was extremely judgmental in high school about people who used "super" as an adjective in place of "very," and then it happened to me. I'm super ashamed.
