conversate

Of all the made up words on the planet, the above made up verb is my favorite. A guy pressed up against me on the tube yesterday said it very seriously to his girlfriend he was fighting with. I think, in solidarity, we should all try to use it today in a professional work context.

    uhm, this word is NOT made up, it is a legitimate word in ebonics.
    anyway, it makes my blood boil when people use the word conversate and if anyone ever uses it in a sentence while speaking to me i usually walk away without responding.

    Hi. It’s lunch time. While I wait for my leftovers to heat up, I shall conversate with my co-workers in the kitchen. Toodles.
