Buffy Summers and her best friend, Willow Rosenberg sat on a bench in the shade and slowly counted the money they’d collected.

“Well, that sucks,” Buffy muttered as she leaned back and smiled as the wind played with her hair. “That’s all we got?”

“And that’s with my babysitting money added in,” Willow said, then added hastily. “There would have been more, but there was this computer program.”

“It’s your money, Will.” Buffy hugged her friend. “It would have been nice if Cordy had coughed up a bit more.”

“Oh, she’s, “Oooo, I’m too fashion conscious to want to spend money on a guy who’s saved my bacon several times this past year.” There was no love lost between the two. “Whoops, can I say that, me being Jewish and all?”

The Friday Five for 20 January 2020: Words

anais_pf in The Friday Five asked:

1. How much slang do you use?

2. What are your favorite words?

3. How much do you curse?

4. What makes a great conversation?

5. How often do you have "deep discussions?"

1. Depends upon the situation. I will use theatre slang at work because that's what everyone talks. I use fannish slang when I'm talking to my guy or like minded friends. There's cooking slang and travel slang, so yeah I use it.

2. Favorite words? I'm not sure if this is in general or favorite slang words. I'm guessing probably the first. Trying to pick a favorite word is like trying to pick your favorite kid. And favorite doesn't always equate to frequency. It's better to use a word correctly than a lot simply because you like it. I am fond of discombobulate.

3. Too much, I'm afraid.

4. Depends upon the people and the situation really. The great conversation I might have at work would bore somewhere else.

5. Not as often as when I was younger and having deep discussions seemed very important.
