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 ”What-EVER,” and I was, like, “Oh my God! That is just so totally bogus,” and she was, like …, you know … ?

Girl No. 2. Totally.

Girl No. 1: Oh my God, I couldn’t believe it!

Girl No. 2. That’s awesome.

Girl No. 1: Totally.

I can only assume that information crossed a divide to which I was not linguistically privy, but I’m not sure. Totally.


  1. Totally

  2. Dude, you’ve got that conversation all wrong. When someone’s mom says, “What-EVER,” and the daughter responds, “That is just so totally bogus,” typically, a “That’s awesome” does not soon follow.

    It’s either bogus. Or it’s awesome. Totally. But generally not both.

  3. You should hear one of those teen girls try to make their factual basis for their guilty plea.
