Words never cease to amaze me. A single word can have multiple meanings. A word can mean something different depending on the tone of voice you use.
Now there is an Instagram account that takes words to a whole new level. It takes everyday words and provides us with the real meaning of them. Or at least someone’s real meaning of them.
Some of them are so true they just had to be shared.
1. So true
How things change, right? Age gives us a different perspective.
2. More than that
This is the place you feel comfortable enough to do your business. Most of the time.
3. So true
Tradition has often gone past the point of being sensible. But we still feel forced to follow it.
4. Too lazy to continue
Or you just want to appear to know more than you really do. Just end the sentence and be done with it.
5. Oh, really?
I’m amused with people who decades are centuries after the fact assume to know what an author was thinking when they penned their prose. Frankly teach, you have no clue.
6. Real love
What is it about siblings? At the end of the day they’ll be there, but in those hours before you can fight like cats and dogs.
7. Just words
Often times meaningless words, at that. How often do you answer with “I’m fine,” when it’s miles from the truth?
8. Alrighty, then
I’ve just realized that you are off your rocker, and I’m wasting time having this conversation. Alrighty, then and oh, okay are pretty much synonymous.
You know you have a true friend when they put up with your BS. And remain your friend.
Yes, forget about getting philosophical about it. You’re in this mess because you made this mess.
11. I know you’ve said this!
And it doesn’t matter how you say it. You can yell never mind, or you can say it with a sweet smile. You’re still really saying, “I think you’re an idiot.”
I’m agreeing with this is. When you can yawn, stretch, roll over and go back to sleep instead of jumping out of bed. Yes, this is sweet happiness.
It’s true. That short little “k” can convey a whole lot of anger. But it doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t convey something else as well. It’s all about the way it’s said.
14. Time to diet
I can relate to this one. I find that I’m opening Instagram multiple times throughout the day. Perhaps I need to cut down.
15. A show of hands, please
How many psychopaths reading this? Because it seems to be official. You’re crazy.
16. Oh, yes!
Partnership brings its own unique brand of problems. Which you can hopefully work through.
17. Truer words
I live this nearly every day. Tonight will be the night I go to bed at a reasonable time. Uh-huh.
18. You know who you are
We all know a few of these, right? Don’t ask my opinion if you really don’t want it.
19. So many applications
This can also be a complete—but polite—blow off. Because you never intend for it to happen.
Or, waving back at someone who wasn’t waving at you. Going to hug someone but they have put a hand out to shake. Oopsie.
21. Thank you
I hate it when people say this to me. Why not just keep your mouth closed?
22. That too
But it could also be for maintaining secrecy. You don’t want to blurt out something you don’t want anyone else to hear.
There is a reason why I’m a writer and not an accountant—or some other number person. Because this statement couldn’t be truer.
Be a better you. Work hard to achieve your goals.
25. No willpower
There is a reason why the Lay’s commercial says, “Betcha can’t eat just one.” Because most of us can’t.
26. Time flies
The best-laid plans, right? You will use your time wisely.
27. So sad
Did you know there are a few ways to stop the tears? The one that works for me if putting the onion in the fridge for at least 24 hours before cutting.
It’s thank goodness for the fat! It will keep me warm when shoveling on frigid days.
29. More is involved
You need a certain look in your eyes as well. You need to look pleading while asking the question.
30. So true
I can do this. I know I can do this. I will do this. This is too hard. I can’t do this. That’s pretty much the way it goes for me.
And for you ladies out there, we need to add something. There is a 100% chance that it will land on your boobs. And trying to rub it off will just make it worse.
And one more. It instantly becomes the place where you really can fall asleep—just before it’s time for the alarm.
33. Me, me, me. I, I, I.
These people are tough to be around. They think everyone else should orbit around them.
34. Why is that?
It’s true for me. Tell me to calm down and it will ramp me right up.
35. So sad
We all need a job in order to live. The fact that some jobs are sucking the life out of people is so wrong.
36. Oh, boy
As the world’s worst procrastinator, I can relate. There is always a good reason to put things off.
37. Or next week
Actually, either works. Because neither of them are today.
38. Give them a chance
I know some introverts. And even though it took years for them to warm up to me–the utmost extrovert—they are the coolest people. And some of my best friends.
I so want to use this. However, I just know it would confuse people because it wouldn’t make sense when I did.
