The word I’m guilty of using FAR too often is “drama.” I absolutely hate the word; I think I use it too often, I think others use it too often, AND… I think it was made popular because no one could figure out whet else call the situation they were in.
There is someone I know who uses the word a’int, KNOWING it drives me crazy. But it’s just a word… I shouldn’t let it effect me. However, I do, and he knows it, and now I think he does it on purpose just to see my reaction.
Our vocabulary doesn’t define who we are. I used to think that those with poor grammar were less educated, and not worth having a conversation with. What could they possibly say that would capture my interest? Well, the person constantly using the word a’int not only captured my attention; he captured my heart. I’m so glad I didn’t allow my simplemindedness to distance myself from him.
If you read Eckhart Tolle’s book, A New Earth, he describes that words are just labels. Who decided that a tree would be called a tree? A bird was/is a bird? They are in fact just labels.
Okay… there’s my two cents. Hope you all have a great day!!
