Having said that, I was raking leaves today and had a thought concerning the way we speak. "We" being our generation - the Millennials, Generation Y, Echo Boomers, whatever you wanna call them. Us. You get the picture.
Simply put, we've molested the English language.
Maybe we haven't full-blown raped it, but there's definitely been some unwanted verbal contact. I feel like this could be a recurring segment, so I'll stick to one word for this post. And that word is...
|I Googled "random." This seemed fitting.|
Now, though, this word can basically mean anything. Often used negatively, "random" can mean "coincidental," as in: "Betch, we're wearing the same skirt, how randommmmm." It can also mean "sketchy," as in: "Check out that random dude passed out behind the pavilion." Sometimes, it's used correctly, but with an extraordinarily negative connotation, as in: "Yo, the cops randomly searched my car and found my weed... what the fuck!"
If you wanted to really go wild, you could say something like: "Betch, that random dude passed out behind the pavilion is randomly wearing the same skirt as you! Let's go see if he's got any weed."
