The other day, I overheard the following exchange between two teenaged-looking girls while waiting on line at a local convenience store.
Girl No. 1: My mom was, like â€What-EVER,â€ and I was, like, â€œOh my God! That is just so totally bogus,â€ and she was, like â€¦, you know â€¦ ?
Girl No. 2. Totally.
Girl No. 1: Oh my God, I couldnâ€™t believe it!
Girl No. 2. Thatâ€™s awesome.
Girl No. 1: Totally.
I can only assume that information crossed a divide to which I was not linguistically privy, but Iâ€™m not sure. Totally.
