What is the most commonly used phrase in your life?

Asked by kissmesoftly (406points) January 20th, 2011

Mine is most likely is: “I am joking” because no one gets my deadpan humor without an explanation. What is yours?

I doesn’t mean what you think either.

@Jude I would never assume such things.

I can verify cookies is @jude.‘s Lol.

I use the word fantastic a lot; I used to use fabulous a lot.

And, the word interesting when I am thinking about what someone said. When it is a new way for me to look at something.

Someone pointed out to me the other day that I use “like” and “I don’t know” and “you know what I mean” a lot in conversation.

So, like, I don’t know, I guess those would be the most commonly used, you know what I mean?

“Maybe tomorrow…”

“That’s cool”
I use it to:
Express interest in a subject
Let people know I forgive them/don’t mind
Respond positively to an offer for food or similar gift

And countless others I’m forgetting.
It’s all in the tone of voice.

‘Fuck’. My mother has forever been telling me that i need to find a new favorite adjective, so far iv found none as versatile.

“So….” I say it to start any and all conversations, because I know what it sounds like coming out of my mouth and I don’t have to worry about stuttering it. When I’m socially nervous, I trip easily over my words. “So…” is my security blanket.

In life, it’s “No problem”
On here, it’s “Pull My Finger”

“mother fucker” not to my kids.
“do this, do that” to my kids.
when I’m caught by surprise like stubbing my toe or something it’s “COCK SUCKING WHORE!”

“Awesome” I seem to use that the most these days!

erichw1504's avatar

“Nice!”, said when something is really cool or when somebody does something stupid.

“Holy mother of God!”, said very quickly when realizing the guy your brother just introduced you to used to be a woman that he dated.

5 points if you catch this reference.

I have two that I use a lot:

“SERIOUSLY!?!?!?” When I’m upset.

“I’m so sorry!”
Not always as an apology, but because that’s how I sympathize with people. Sort of like if you say, “My cat died this morning.” And I respond, “Oh, I’m so sorry!” It’s because I’m trying to sympathize and offer support; I know it’s not my fault so why would I use “I’m sorry” as an apology? LOL Some of my friends still don’t get it and every time I say “I’m sorry” about something, they say “Eh, it’s not your fault…” And I can’t seem to stop saying it!

“Ah! I see!” Haha I use that all the time even on the phone. :P
“I could make a really bad and dirty joke right now..” Because I just happen to have bad humor like that. :P
