A New, like, Post

So... we've all got used to the young 'uns and not so young 'uns saying "like" a lot. I have found myself doing it to.

So imagine my surprise to find that those of my generation (i.e. in our prrrrime) are now using "like" in WRITTEN CORRESPONDENCE.

From an e-mail sent to me by an extremely erudite and dear friend:

"It cost, like, $3."

This actually made me laugh out loud. But nothing is more grotesque than when I use it inadvertently, with an English accent no less! UGH! I'm trying to curb this habit.

Relax...there is ALOT that is more grotesque than an english accent saying "Like".

Such as ketchup on eggs and full grown dogs no bigger than a thimble.

How about the ubiquitous "you knows"......and I admit I am guilty of over-use of that one.
