I think that I might lose my mind if I hear my kids say the word "like" again.
It’s really, like, annoying to hear how many times they use the word "like" when they are, like, speaking.
It’s sometimes, like, hard for me to follow along with the, like, story when they, like, keep saying the word "like" all the time.
I’m, like, totally lost when they are speaking. It’s, like, so confusing.
I thought my daughter was, like, telling me about what, like, happened at camp. But when she got to the 14th "like" I kind of, like, lost track of what she was saying.
I started to, like, count the "likes."
And I was, like, “Sweetie, you have got to stop saying the word 'like.'”
And she was, like, “What?”
So I was, like, “You say the word 'like' all the time. I can’t understand what you are saying.”
Then I was, like, “Now, whenever you say the word like, you have to do a sit-up.”
She was, like, “What!??”
And I was, like, “Yes!”
She was, like, “Okay, but if I use the word 'like' the, like, right way, then it doesn’t count, right?”
I was, like, “Right.”
By the end of the day, she had to do, like, 50 sit-ups.
Since then, her likes have gotten less, but if my math is correct after this I need to do, like, more than 35 sit-ups.
I, like, need to work on this.
