in Rantings, Strange and Unusual
The most overused word amongst people around these parts, it does my head in. It ends almost every sentence, drawn out in a sort of nasal yuppy whine… ‘y’okay huuun?’
I was okay until you associated me with one of those crazy nomad invaders of 4th century Europe, I’m nothing like those mad bastards. Nor am I a Korean wind instrument. Moreover, how is it a nice thing to be synonymous with a Gray Partridge or a Rangers football fan?!
I have friends who are also highly intolerant of this sort feminine shmooze who would happily smack a ‘hunner’ upside the head for degrading them so. One such friend received a ‘Good Night’ text from me last week which was followed by a few X’s for good measure. I thought nothing of it, sure everyone X’s at some point or another.
She replied quite promptly with; “Fuck off ya big lezzer!”
If I had dared to wish her a good night with a hun stuck on the end instead of the inevitable triple X, I fear she would have hopped in her car and driven straight over to my house to deliver a swift kick in the boobies personally. I wouldn’t blame her.
That’s it. No more triple Xs from me so, and a kick up the hole for anyone who mentions the H word, too. From now on it’s zero tolerance hun-wise.
