Hi blog friends. I’ve been buried under heavy piles of work and way too many personal obligations lately. Sorry for not checking your posts much. I’m hoping to be reading and writing at more regular intervals very soon.
In the meantime, I wanted to throw out a quick post to shoot down some phrases I’ve been contemplating in my nil free time this week.
This all started when I overheard some dude at work say, “It’s all good” to someone on the phone. I immediately thought, “tardball.”
It seems to me that the following phrases just need to be suffocated and silenced forever. At least when it comes to middle-aged white guys. These sayings include:
“You go girl.”
“I’m just f&ckin' with ya.”
“What up, dawg?”
“What up, playah?”
“Get my drink on.”
“Get my [ANYTHING] on.”
High-fiving in public. (Note: I know this is not a phrase. Exceptions apply, including: sporting events, bar settings while sporting events are on TV, bar settings where a team game is being played.)
I know there are more, but instead of spending more time thinking of them, I’m just going to plan to punch someone in the mouth next time I hear him say one.
