Blogging is bo cool

Did anyone out there ever grow up using a word, only to later find out it’s not actually a word? Bo was that word for me. I grew up in a not so small town of about 20,000 people. Everyone where I grew up, in my generation, used the word bo. It basically meant very or extremely. A typical use would be “Did you see Return of the Jedi yet?” “Yeah, Ewoks are bo gay.” Through my childhood, grade school, and high school, bo was just a part of my vocabulary. When I went to college I used it and was ostracized. I quickly learned not to use it, but when with my friends I grew up with I still use it.

In another example, my mom use to use the word gihugeic. As in a combination of gigantic and huge. Even at the age of 5 I knew that wasn’t a word. I still remember when I was about 12 years old she came home one day and told a story about how she used the word and someone told her it wasn’t a real word. She was bo shocked. She went to the dictionary and looked it up in disbelief. Actually thinking about it now, she was kind of a pioneer. Combining two words, such as web and log, is the new thing to do.

Anyway, my reason for telling this is I’ve decided to start using bo as a part of my regular vocabulary again. I’m also thinking about making up other words that just make sense to me. Things that are really dull and boring will be during. Hmmm, that doesn’t work. Things that are tiny and small will be tall. Dammit! I’ll work on this and come up with something…

Very cool so I can now continue to use the words in my volcabulary that make total sense to me, maybe to no one else but total sense to me, without fear of recrimination. I will just send them to you if someone berates me for my use of Alekxinese.
I'll try to remember to share if you'd like.

um, tim, "bo gay"? the only bo's i know are bo derrick (ugly old slut) bodacious (too 80's to use now...though we are reverting to 80's fashion so...?) bo-otylicious (no explanation needed) and of course "Bo knows"...just about everything except where his paycheck disappeared to.

i'm going to have to facilitate a full on intervention dissuading you from using this made up language which isn't very intellectual sounding...i mean what I get from this "bo" instead of "so" = a clear speech impediment brought on by an east coast edumacation. *laughingevily* ; )

Sorry dude, use "super" instead.

It's about that time of the year again! I found a good place to get the snow blower review for cheap... But there are times of the year that I think it would just be easier to live in Florida.
