Every year my father likes to adopt a new learned word in which case he uses in excess during any and every conversation.
This past year his word was: literally.
I mean he literally used it after every word, literally. And he would even tack it and the end of every sentence.
His enthusiasm was beyond measure. His hand gestures, pitch, and facial expressions were an added bonus.
So in his honor... I found him a funny. I look forward to his new word in 2013.
