Dear Editor, Have you, you know, noticed how the expressions "Er" and "Uh" have, you know, been replaced by you know, "you know?" How utterly, you know, inane and, you know, irritating. A. Jack MayDanville

I was sitting at Expressions coffee shop yesterday with my friend and fellow Sun staffer Jenna Mink when I decided that all the world's problems could be solved if the world leaders just took a 10-minute brownie break. You think I kid, but I'm not so sure I haven't stumbled upon a revolutionary idea here. Granted, most people do not have my sugar tolerance (that takes years of intense dedication and practice), but there is something to be said for taking a few minutes, preferably over dessert, talking to a good friend.

It wasn't a thought-provoking conversation in which we were engaged. On the light side, it was just a pleasant one between two friends. But as we talked, something was said that, at once, caught the attention of my friend. Immediately, he reacted dismissively by saying, “Forget it. That's not important.” So, on the spur of the moment and without further thought or serious examination, a value judgment was rendered, and as a result, something was forgotten. It was brushed aside as insignificant and inconsequential.
