the speech impediment of the 21st century (by Marc Johns)

I’ll fuck you up buddy this is not a speech impediment it’s linguistic evolution!! the existence of the phrase “Aisha was like” allows the speaker to convey whatever Aisha said without making the listener assume they’re quoting Aisha directly while still maintaining the FEELING of what Aisha said.

ie, Aisha said she didn’t want to go out with me VERSUS Aisha was like, “I’d rather kiss a Wookie”.

the addition of “XYZ was like” lets the speaker be more expressive and efficient and it is a totally valid method of communicating information!!

With the way language has evolved, this is one of the few ways I can even think of to express in casual conversation what someone said. 

"So I said to Aisha," is certainly used, but if you remove the "so," which implies casual tone ("and" can be used in the same way), you get

"I said to Aisha," which is really formal in most English dialects/variations. I don’t know about all, but in New England dialects, you sound like you’re reading aloud from a novel.

"I told Aisha," is really only used when you continue to describe, not tell, what you told her. Ex: "I told Aisha that James was too punk for her" works while, "I told Aisha, ‘James is too punk for you’" crosses the line back into formalness of the "I said."

Things like “I asked” or “I answered [with]” are similar levels of casual and efficient to the “So, I said [or say, as many conversations about the past take place in present tense anyway, as if the speaker is giving a play-by-play in the moment]” but are specific to only certain situations. 

"I was like, 'Marc Johns, what is your obsession with restoring archaic speech patterns and interfering with the natural progression of English from complex to efficient?'" envelopes all of these easily and is accessible and crisp, and allows for more variations on inflection than the others.

Of course, James is probably like, “I already fucking said that.” But eh, I tried adding on.

she ate a sock string and it’s stuck in her intestines and she’s gonna die if I don’t get her surgery. I’m about 600 dollars short, I have a donate button if anyone can help. i can show vet bills to anyone who wants to see. she’s such a good baby please help or reblog if you can im really scared I’m gonna lose her

edit: this is the bill from yesterday when we got her the xrays (the radiographs per snap) and a few other things to hold her over until we can build up some money. im taking her in today at 2:40 and ill ask for a copy of the surgery bill if i can get one (they didnt give me one yesterday because i couldnt even pay for everything on the last bill) 

im also adding a picture we took of her on the vets table yesterday 

reblogging with added proof

*******UPDATE****** the vet we were taking her can not care for her anymore (because they close) and she needs to go into surgery immediately, we have her boarded at an emergency vet and the surgery is gonna be roughly 1500. we’ve raised 520 so far and they can start helping her because I have proof that I have money coming but we can’t take her home until we pay. I’m going to be at the emergency vet in about 4 hours and I will post proof of bills, everything’s going really fast because she’s getting worse and worse so please help if you can

we just got rejected for credit care which we were hoping to get, these donations are now the /only/ thing we have to pay her vet bill. please help
