So I was like, “What happened to the past tense of say?” She was like, “But I like the word ‘like.'”
I like the world “like” too. But I also still like the word “said.”
Have you heard it yet? Out of the mouths of pre-teens — especially the one in my house. No one actually “says” anything anymore … they just “was like” it. I think if I just like ignore it, it will like go away. Gee, this new word is so like versatile!
