The youth of today

Have you noticed how you can tell how young someone is by the number of extra vowels and consonants they insert in words?

Ammmaaaaazzzziiinnggg!!!!

Funny because a decade ago young people invented short forms 4 txt msg purposes – which made sense for economy and speed – especially in the days before predictive text. 

Now they elongate words for extra emphasis.

Perhaps its all part of the natural evolution of language? Or pollution from across the pond?

Call me a fuddy-duddy, but I find it kind of aawwwkwaaaarrrddd reading this stuff!

All  apropos of nothing, at 7:30 in the morning. I don’t sleep much on steroids and random thoughts pop into my head all night.

Random. Now there’s a word I like – so thanks young’uns for reviving this one.

Off to chemo at ten. JP coming too. A bit apprehensive about this one – it being a new regime – so as always positive thoughts etc. greatly appreciated.
