Like, totally, Demi!

I'm trying to break my youngest son's habit of including "like" in what seems to be every sentence. He's only 6, so hopefully I'm catching it early enough. Otherwise, he might sound like the Disney dolt, Demi Lovatno. I clicked into a story about Lovatno being excited to play for the Obama girls, and I had to slog through this garbage:

"I met a lot of really cool people, but Usher was really cool because I got to
meet him," she shared.

Uh, OK. You know, I ate a warm chocolate chip cookie,
but that chocolate chip cookie was warm because I ate it.

"For my birthday, when I was like 10, I went to his concert, so it was like surreal to be on the same stage with him and hanging out backstage just being like, 'A few years ago, I was at your concert for my birthday and freaked out when you looked my way.'"

That is like totally rad, I mean, like you are so like lucky.

Like, here's the idiot.

Glad I'm not the only one fighting the good fight. My eight year old has been doing the same thing. He's getting better because I shoot him a look every time he inserts 'like' into a sentence.

Sadly, I don't think it will ever go away.

Couldn't agree more. We're turning into a country of idiots.
