I start a sentence or story with “so” way too frequently. “So, I was at CVS and …”
One of my big filler statements is “kind of” (more accurately, “kinda”). It can be used where other people say “like”. I also end too many sentences with “y’know?” But I really DO have a reason - sometimes what I’m talking about is either weird or complicated so I want to make sure that I’m making sense.
And I have a phrase that came from the Dope! “attantion of details”. don’t ask, I bet you didn’t think a post you wrote 5 years ago would influence the everyday language of someone on the other side of the globe!
