“So” is so the new “um”

So I’ve just noticed that nearly a third of my journal entries start with “So”. And thus, in true talentless blogger style, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to write an entirely accurate and informative, yet utterly useless entry on it. Awesome.

Just so this isn’t a complete waste of time, I’m getting really sick of people who put “ah” and “um” after every second word. Especially the ones who clearly do it out of habit – speaking a million miles an hour even with the ums – rather than some kind of mental misfire. I guess all that berating by teachers and grandparents did have an effect, albeit one with a fifteen year incubation period.
