So, like, I was listening to some young people, like, talking the other day and I was all, "Like, what exactly are you, like, trying to say?" And they were all, like, "OMG, the other day, I was like, all drunk and (stuff) and like, my dog kept barking and I was like, wth dude!"
Later on between two adults;
"Like, it doesn't really bother me, like, I mean, I kinda get the whole scene, but like, I dunno man."
"Yeah, it's jacked up. Like, what's the deal with, like, that whole Linda thing?"
"I dunno dude. Like, I kinda get it but then, like, it's totally messed up."
I understand languages are always evolving with words either passing out of vogue or having new meanings attached to them. I also understand that the average person probably uses less than 15-20 different words per day. But it seems as if America is now trending even less, especially among young adults. Hey, I'm no wordsmith but when I pause to reflect on this I'm like, OMG, that's like, totally messed up and scary.
