"You know"

Spending some time overseas, where I soon picked up "No Worries" off the Aussie residents of the Canadian Rockies, it's become increasingly obvious to me that there is a disease at the heart of the English language. That is the phrase "You know".

Inserted into any conversation for any reason, we're so anti the idea that we should pause to think, perhaps dropping the conch, rather than keep the motormouth running.

Today I think I only "you know"ed twice, but still each time I kicked myself.

So LJ masses, after I failed to post the "Tell me something interesting I missed not having been back through two weeks of your journal" earlier this week I will challenge you all to "Count your "you know"s for the day" and post the results.

Go on - you know you want to...
