    What would you no longer like to see, hear, eat, feel or think come 2023?
    I have many but do not want to hog up my own thread ;).

    I am really tired of these words- woke,covid, transparent,trans - anything including fats.
    No longer want to be heartbroken by mass shootings, massive floods, raging wildfires.
    I have no desire to see, or hear about the following, love life, marriage,divorce, new billion dollar home of any so called celebrity.
    And, no harm wished, but if Face Book, Twitter, Tik Tok to name three, would just disslove in the ground, things around us might actully improve. :rolleyes:

    "Triggered." Ugh.

    "Safe Space" in the context of [purported] adults.

    Then there's the word "Like" interjected everywhere except as an introduction to a simile.
    "Was like" ≠ "Said"

    "... and he goes..."

    Like, I really literally concur with all of you.

    And like, I literally do not wish to hear the word, “transgender” or literally any advice or rants out of the mouths of literally anyone in the music or movie industry.
    Oh, and I literally hate the words, “climate change or global warming”.

    One more: A short while ago, I literally had to change the radio channel because a relief commentator literally said literally a dozen times in about 5 minutes of broadcast. Literally dude and dudettes !

    meh….I kinda like to use that one once in a while whilst writing. Since I rarely get into speaking conversations, I probably do not use it very much since I think it sounds too much like a twinkie speaking.

    I have always hated the UP inflection kids used even if not asking a question.

    So it actually (sorry) has a name? You hear it on commercials a lot. The worst is the bunch that promotes the under-eye-bag shrinkage. I could never put my finger on just what it was that sounded so odd.

    Cool. I have a niece who seems to be mentally stuck in the 70s. She says, "Cool" or "Cool Beans" every time she likes something.

    I worked with a woman who said "cool beans" all-the-time. I hope your niece is more likeable than she was...she was mentally stuck, too.

    I'm way more with it than that. I would say "Groovy."
