The Language of Me

The other day my friend Kameron said, ” I wish I could talk like you, Katie.” and that made me think, how do I talk? Then I realized that I do say some things that most people don’t say. There are two things I say a lot that typically normal people do not say.

#1. Herro
Instead of saying Hello I say Herro to imitate my Japanese heritage. Typically most Japanese cannot tell the different between L’s and R’s, so I just stuck with the R’s and usually elongate the r. It typically looks like this spelled on my texts, herrrrroooooo. I also yell this to people on campus, and it pretty much informs people I am here.

#2. Ya Ninja
This also goes back my heritage, but just because I call you ya ninja does not mean that you are seriously a ninja, it’s kind of my sarcastic response to when people say obvious things or things I find funny or dumb. You have to place emphasis on the ya, basically you just have to hear me say it… I may have to do a vlog on this.

There is really nothing to be jealous of because anyone can say these words or phrases, but my friends say that I do it the best because of the way I say things. I never knew that I could say things better than others, but I guess it’s like how English accents usually sound better than when we speak. I guess I’m just privileged… just kidding!

Here’s a little barbershop quartet of an old school song, I love Jimmy Fallon

    Oh my word, you crack me up. Remind me to show you a part of my wedding video that has to do with your #1. It was something our Taiwanese friend did that you would laugh at. Also, I’m using ya ninja from now on…I love that.
