I Mean, Dude!

Well, wouldn’t you know it, they want me to write something funny. For some reason the way we talk isn’t good enough. How come? I’m not complaining, mind, it doesn’t do any good anyhow. But, well, I could try, if the weather holds, or something like that. Then maybe I would live happily ever after. Whatever. But, oh my god, this is, like, so hard, you know? So I’m supposed to think outside the box. Yeah right. Do they even know what that means? I mean, Dude! Come on! Meh. What do I care? Anyhow, I’m giving them what they want, right? I mean, really, it’s what I have to do. Being a team player, not making waves. Seriously. Like, no way. No can do. I’m an individual, see? You know what I mean. I’m OK, you’re OK, blah, blah, blah. Same old, same old.Just because they jump off a cliff doesn’t mean I have to, right? You get my drift. I mean, it makes sense, you know? It’s not rocket science. So, no problem. I’ll give them what they want. But they don’t know what’s good for them. They’ll regret it. At the end of the day they’ll see it my way. I mean, this post is so awesome. They’ll see the light. When all is said and done, after they read my two cents worth, they’ll see reason. What’s wrong with throwing in a few words we all use every day, right. I mean it makes is all more real. It drives me up the wall the way they say we overuse some words. I mean, if people all what it means, so what. Right? Like, in the end, it all comes out in the wash. No harm done, everybody’s happy. Meh.

In general, we all talk that way, like, you know what I mean. For some reason they want to make a big issue out of this. I mean, Who cares? They probably won’t like this anyway. So what? I did it my way. At least it hasn’t been done to death. So, in for a penny, in for a pound. It is what it is, right? And, like, I have to be me, you know? What difference does it make, anyway? Will they print it? I guess, maybe. I mean, it is pretty awesome. Oh my god, what if I won an award for this or something? I mean, like, that would be so cool, man. I mean, ya gotta love it, right? It doesn’t get any better than this. So, I’m good to go. Small things amuse small minds. So here goes. This could be the start of something big. Lol. Hey, this was way easy. Who knew? Hah!

So TTFN, time top pack it in. Tomorrow’s another day. If I don’t get some sleep I’ll be deader than a doornail, not worth a crap. Won’t be able to keep my head up. Won’t be able to string two words together. Aw, what the f*&$. S%#t, it’s all B. S. anyway. Lol. See you in the funny papers.

  1. Awesome stuff, Yvonne, totally understand what you're saying, dude.

    Ok, I have to ask. I have seen this every where I am still clueless as to what it means. Ok, here goes, I'll ask and probably get laughed at, right, but what the heck does 'meh' mean? I've seen everywhere and I know there is another one like 'swag'; don't know what that means either. I know someone told me at one time, can't remember. I know there is another one, but can't remember that one either.
