the speech impediment of the 21st century (by Marc Johns)

I’ll fuck you up buddy this is not a speech impediment it’s linguistic evolution!! the existence of the phrase “Aisha was like” allows the speaker to convey whatever Aisha said without making the listener assume they’re quoting Aisha directly while still maintaining the FEELING of what Aisha said.

ie, Aisha said she didn’t want to go out with me VERSUS Aisha was like, “I’d rather kiss a Wookie”.

the addition of “XYZ was like” lets the speaker be more expressive and efficient and it is a totally valid method of communicating information!!

With the way language has evolved, this is one of the few ways I can even think of to express in casual conversation what someone said. 

"So I said to Aisha," is certainly used, but if you remove the "so," which implies casual tone ("and" can be used in the same way), you get

"I said to Aisha," which is really formal in most English dialects/variations. I don’t know about all, but in New England dialects, you sound like you’re reading aloud from a novel.

"I told Aisha," is really only used when you continue to describe, not tell, what you told her. Ex: "I told Aisha that James was too punk for her" works while, "I told Aisha, ‘James is too punk for you’" crosses the line back into formalness of the "I said."

Things like “I asked” or “I answered [with]” are similar levels of casual and efficient to the “So, I said [or say, as many conversations about the past take place in present tense anyway, as if the speaker is giving a play-by-play in the moment]” but are specific to only certain situations. 

"I was like, 'Marc Johns, what is your obsession with restoring archaic speech patterns and interfering with the natural progression of English from complex to efficient?'" envelopes all of these easily and is accessible and crisp, and allows for more variations on inflection than the others.

Of course, James is probably like, “I already fucking said that.” But eh, I tried adding on.

My stitches got caught on food and I cut the food out. This was the wrong choice, and I had to go in and get them put back in.

Except, because it’s Sunday, it was just me and the doctor, so I ended up assisting in my own suturing.

Let me tell you, for someone with a newly minted trauma response to needles? That was Not Fun At All.

Also, ow ow ow.

What you’re really saying when you’re against self diagnosis:

theconcealedweapon:

1. Everyone should be assumed neurotypical and should be forced to act neurotypical, until proven otherwise.

2. Everyone who has been unable to get diagnosed for any reason should suffer in silence.

there are way too many social justice warriors. we need a social justice scout and a social justice healer and a social justice black mage. seriously this videogame has like 10 different classes you can play and everyone goes for the one that just uses generic melee weapons?

I prefer to play the social justice tinker gnome.

New bottom wire with mostly healed sutures and new rubber bands (bright pink this time). Next week I get a sturdier wire, the week after I get my top periodontal bone graft, and the week after that I get my top wire put in. Then I get to have a procedure to snip the ligament under my tongue so it quits pulling badly on things.

It’s gonna be a busy month.

roserayne yup those will work :-)

Please tag for needles/piercing

Hey guys,

Thanks to my lovely surgery, I appear to have gone from mildly to badly triggered by needles (esp surgical suturing types) and things going through or under skin. Could you please tag for those, at least for now? edit to add: “#needles cw” and “#piercing cw” are my preferred tags but “#needles anything” and “#piercing anything” will work I think, including just plain #needles/#piercing

(It seems like regular earrings and maybe some facial piercings are okay, but it’s probably a good idea to tag anything that isn’t standard old earrings)
