talkin' slick 'n' with-it

It's just so fucking cozy and infra dig -- the latterday implementation of the word "so" to lead off an answer to any question. It is very popular these days. "What time is it?" "So ... it's 2:35." "When did the volcano erupt?" "So, I was playing video games when...."

I realize these fads come and go with women's hooker-fashion shoes or men's fruit-tight suits, but with each reuse I feel I am sinking lower and lower ... further and further behind in some third-grade quick sand.

So what makes me imagine I'd made it to the third grade ...?


  1. Worked with an English Literal doctoral student who would start every statement and question with "So...."

    Last I heard she got her PhD and was teaching.

    Go figure!

  2. Oops!

    S/B "Literature" and not "Literal" in first sentence above.
