I was thinking about certain phrases we use a lot and how they water down our conversations. Take the phrase "kind of" for example. What does that mean? Kind of?
I kind of feel like eating Chinese. It's kind of cold in here. That kind of tastes bad. Really? Does it or does it not taste bad? Is it cold or isn't it? Do you want the egg roll or not?
In as fairness, however, kind of can have some weigh behind it. Imagine your boyfriend pulling out that special circle of sparkling magic and whispering, "I love you.....kind of."
Hmm. I kind of wished with all my heart that I sorta knew what else to say......
