I have a day off and am listening to the news as I crochet along on my Short N Sweet. I am listening to a story about a party gone wrong. Something about a girl who gets shot by another girl. Apparently they “liked” the same boy. And I suppose one of them “liked” him enough to kill. Now, the reporter had a bystander give a play by play of the incident. It went something like this. She was a young girl in her teens.
Girl: I think they liked the same guy. And like she took a gun out and like said she was going to like kill the other girl. She like wanted him for herself.
Now, how hard is it to stop using the word “like”. It is an all purpose word and can be used as a noun, preposition, verb, adjective. I do not believe that it should be used as an adverb. I don’t profess to be a linguist but even I know that like is being used way too much. Are we raising a generation of “like” idiots. I know this is harsh. But ya just don’t go on tv speaking like this poor girl did. Please think about what you’re going to say and don’t use like more than once in a sentance.
Enough of my language rant. I apologize for any spelling errors I have ever had or will have in the future.
I finally figured out what I was doing wrong w/ my Short N Sweet. There was a half shell added to each of the fronts and I figured out how to incorporate it in the stitch pattern. Yeah!!! I’ve finished the fronts and have linked the fronts and the back together. Now I just need to continue until it’s the length I wanted. The bolero is a bit chunky as it is crocheted in worsted weight. I hope it doesn’t look like a heavy curtain when I have it on.
Back to crocheting!
