The L Word.

June 24, 2009

The other day, as I was driving with my sister in the car, she said... the L-word.
(and it wasn't love)
In fact, to be quite honest, it triggered such disgust inside my heart, I knew I would eventually resort to writing a blog about that experience. And here it is.

The L word which I am referring to, (and which I hesitatingly type) is: legit.
The first time I heard this word was about a year or so ago... A boy who I was slightly infatuated with used it almost every other sentence. When this word first slipped out of his mouth, I thought "Hmm, how peculiar..." But he said it, and said it, and said it...and then he disappeared, and so did this word.

Now to my dismay, it's all over the place. I heard it in a movie, in a television show, read it in a magazine and many of my friends say it...but for some reason, when this atrocious non-word came out of my sisters mouth, a part of me died.
I hate that word.

Okay, okay... I realize this odd pet-peeve of mine may offend others, because many others may use it; but once upon a time when the term "sweet" began to be used,
(ie: "there's a party tonight!"
response: "sweet!")
I also vomited inside.
My major crush of the fifth grade would say "sweet" ALL the time. All of it. Therefore, this crush of mine had to end.... Years later though, I will admit, I have found myself to be okay with this word and its usage...and (gasp) I have said it as well.

But the word legit? No. I will never come around. I can't. I won't. I refuse and apologize to those who are "L word fans." But I detest the word more than most terrible things in life, like when people chew apples

*And on a slightly more disconcerting note, as she texted he last night, he used the phrase: "I'm sitting on the couch because I'm ty ty." (translation: tired).
I can no longer encourage that relationship.

I love this post. I hate when people say "a-sap" instead of actually saying "a.s.a.p."
