12 Crabapples for Being Too Moo
(ooooh how i want all mushrooms killed by committee).
The proposed resolution is this:
I need to stop using "moo" as a filler word, injection, and replacement for real words.
A few tidy examples:
"Today sucked. Moo."
"He asked me what I was thinking and I was like moo."
Q: "How was it?"... A: "Ya know-- moo."
Today though, the question was "What does she look like?"-- in reference to an older, portly woman.
You see where this is going.
Yup: "I dunno...moo."
Now Jaynie, that's not nice.
And then I was self-inducedly forced to spend a solid (but flimsy) 15 minutes explaining that "moo" obviously does not indicate "sound a cow makes," but instead "a deviation of 'meh'... a kind of verbal shrug, ever-imbued with a healthy dose of apathy, ennui, and, well, you know...moo."
I would make a shitty linguist.
