I admit that crowds are not one of my favorite things. I also do not enjoy listening to the conversations of others.
Last night we were in Reliant Stadium to see one of this years rodeo performances.
Behind us sat four twenty something ladies who talked loudly during the entire performance.
They chatted on and on usually at the same time. It was difficult to hear the announcer over the bantering.
One of the things I noticed was that the English language has changed a lot since I was twenty something.
The word "like" is used often. " it was like". I was like, she was like... They were like... Like this and like that.
Every sentence started with the word "like" and it was interspersed throughout each statement!
Perhaps it is the fact that I was an English major, or the fact that I had a librarian for a mother that makes it difficult for me to listen to the incorrect use of the language.
Whatever the reason, I clearly did not like the experience of being bombarded with the incessant loud chatter.
