meninlove said In acting class long, long years ago we had to perform a play using only the word Oh.
Oh. (getting the idea)
Try this in front of a mirror, add inflection. One word can mean many things.
Try it again using only the word 'really'. Try it again using only the word 'no' or 'yes'. Is it the age of texting that is causing us to lose this skill in spoken language?
Oooooh! (amazement, when a huge boner pops out)
OH! (sudden surprise, when a boner delivers a premature facial)
Oooooh... (delivering a facial)
Oooooh... (slipping in the shower together while washing off a facial)
And yeah, trying those in front of mirrors is fun, the more inflection the better. And trying again, using the word "fuck".
