Girls Talk - Favourite Word

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

I will totally concur with our Girls Talk host, Kaye, on this topic. It is simply too difficult to choose just one word. For Girls Talk this month, we will be celebrating our love of words (as bloggers) and for this week, we showcase our most favourite word.

I will choose something simple and say that my favourite word is "Yeah". What a word, hey? Trust me and my love of music to take a word that is way over-used in the music business.

A little story behind this word for me:
I remember when I first started working professionally that I used this word a lot when asked if I'd already done a certain job or have I followed up something. Just goes to show that in my line of work, I have to answer too many yes and no questions, haha.

One day, a colleague commented that he just loved the way I answered because I said "yeah" with such an American accent. Of course, in South Africa, most of them have British accents and so my "yeah" really stood out.

After many, many years in my adopted African country, I have yet to lose my accent. And I still love answering most things "yeah"!

So, yeah....that's my word!

P.S. Hubby disagrees with this post as he says my favourite word is "Dy", which is the last syllable of his name. He tells me that I can't resist using this word because I can't stop looking for him when he is out of my sight or that I like to find things for him to do (when I am in slave-driver wife mode).

    Haha, I use "yeah" a lot too. It's very handy in a conversation when you don't really know what to say but you want to keep things going.
