Top 5 Words that Make You Sound Dumb..and we added one!
The story came out this morning about the "Top 5 words that make you sound dumb"..plus it seemed like the list was missing one. The words are..Like, Basically, Honestly, Literally, and Actually. The ones we hear used in the wrong way the most are "Like" and "Literally." As in "Justin Beiber like came on stage and I literally jumped out of my skin!!" As you know..if you "like" do something..then you didn't do that one thing...you did something LIKE it..but not that task itself. Also..the word "literally"...wow..if you "Literally jumped out of your skin!!!" You'd be bones, right?? LOL. The one we added was "Totally"...because that gets used a ton. But maybe it's a word that really explains what you need to say. Also another over used word "Amazing"..think about it next time you say "That Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich is Awesome!!" Is it really??
