One response to “Lots of Words in Italics Meaning I’m Jus’ Sayin’”

  1. I guess language does undergo a kind of cycle somehow, where some words that used to be “uncool” become popular choices in conversations, while others hibernate for some time before becoming active again as a “rad” invective.

    One day, when you read this entry again, Tim, there may be other words that we perceive as “obsolete” now but in 5 to ten years, they’ll be so popular it becomes a “word-of-mouth” (get it?).
