should you choose to accept it, is simple: Help me come up with substitution phrases.
I tend to over-use my favorite words and phrases, and a former student just reminded me how annoying that can be. So, in the spirit (belated, I know I know, I GET it) of Lent, I am going to work on expanding my vocabulary. Below, I have compiled a list of my most popular go-tos. If you would be so kind as to provide some alternative suggestions, I will be forever in your debt.
3) I'm just sayin, is all.
4) Son of a...
6) Serious (or some form thereof--for serious, seriously, on the serious).
There are probably more, but I can't think of them right now. In fact, I kinda feel bad about this--like I'm abandoning old friends. But, hey! It's a new world, right? And worlds are made of language.
Still. I might keep one or two, just for old time's sake.
