It’s the most hilarious, freaky, weird, gut-laugh-provoking, scary thing when you have a mini-voice-recorder following you around all day long, parroting back to you every.single.word.you.say.
Case in point #1…
The word TOTALLY (emphasis on the TOE-tally)
“Adv. totally - to a complete degree or to the full or entire extent (`whole' is often used informally for `wholly')”
Conversations with proof of proper adverb usage…
Mama: So-and-so sure is a good friend for you, isn’t she Anna?
Anna: She so TOTALLY is.
Mama: You like cheerios don’t you, honey?
Anna: Oh, I so TOTALLY do.
Anna: Hi GG!
Mama: Oh, so I’m your GG now, huh? (GG=Anna’s great-grandma)
Anna: You so TOTALLY are my GG friend.
But WHUT in tarnation happened to my innocent two-and-a-half year old and who sent over the fifteen-year-old-full-of-tude?! When you find my itty bitty bundle of pink fluff, can you send some of the innocence (of mouth) back please?
