but i got fed up

Words to replace said, except this actually helps

I got pretty fed up with looking for words to replace said because they weren’t sorted in a way I could easily use/find them for the right time. So I did some myself.

Edit: People, I’m an English and creative writing double major in college; I understand that there’s nothing wrong with simply using “said.” This was just for fun, and it comes in handy when I need to add pizzazz. 

Today at work I asked one of the kids what her favourite colour was and she said:

‘Pink and purple. They’re pretty. I used to liked yellow but I got fed up with it.’ She stares into the distance. Suddenly this five year old child in her flowery dress with matching ribbons in her hair has become a battle-hardened veteran. She’s seen some shit.

‘Too many things are yellow now’. If this were a movie she’d knock back the last of her whiskey and get up from the bar. I know in my heart of hearts this kid is sick of minions.

So I can’t be the only one who noticed right? Dan being smol in baking vids 😉

Do not repost. Reblogs are appreciated.

Instead of sending hate and death threats to queens you don't like you could

Not fucking do it you fucking piece of shit what is wrong with you

More bookstore antics, this time while I was working in the Children’s Department.

Since the children’s area was a bit closed off from the rest of the store, parents had the tendency to drop their kids off and go shopping elsewhere in the store (or, occasionally, out of it). On this day, a group of children of varying ages had been left in my department and, instead of reading, had busied themselves with a very loud game of knights, dragons, etc.

After about half an hour of my reminding them to use inside voices and walking feet and being ignored while I was trying to shelve books, I got fed up with it and pointed a pencil at them.

“The powerful wizard has put a spell on the kingdom! No one is able to run or speak above a whisper!”

The kids all stopped and stared at me for a moment before one started with “Hey, you can’t-” but was promptly interrupted by the rest of them telling him in hushed voices that they had to whisper now.

The department was blessedly quiet after that.

welcome to the second-best day of my life (link to the first best)

one of my favorite g&s stories is when hms pinafore came out and everyone really liked the “what never” “no never” “what never” “well hardly ever” line so it became a thing people kept saying and it got so widespread that it started popping up in newspapers so one day the head editor from some newspaper got so fed up that he was like “I NEVER WANNA SEE THIS STUPID WHAT NEVER THING AGAIN!!!!!”

and of course someone in the office HAD to get up and say

“what, never?”

and that is how gilbert and sullivan created a meme in 1876
