You know the interwebz have invaded your soul when...

Jun 22 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

[We open on Dr Becca and J in the living room of their fabulous apartment. It's a familiar scene--they sit side by side on the Todd Oldham for La-z-boy Dexter sofa (in Espresso), legs propped up on the coffee table. J browses the baseball blogs, while Dr Becca flips through unread Instapaper articles on her iPad. Suddenly, she sits up.]

Dr Becca: Ooh! I know! I can make the invite for our 4th of July party!

J: Sure, go nuts.

Dr Becca: What should we call it?

J: Um...4th of July party?

Dr Becca: I think we can do better than that!

[She furiously types and swipes, swipes and types, and presents the final template to J.]

J [brow furrowed]: What's "e-piece-oss?"

Dr Becca: It says EPICSAUCE, silly!

J: WTF does that mean?

Dr Becca: You know, like epic. But epic sauce.

J: Why do you say the "sauce" part?

Dr Becca: I don't know...it's just something people say on the internet.

J: This is a thing?

Dr Becca: It's totally a thing!

J: I don't think our friends will understand what we mean if we call our party "Epicsauce 4th of July Party."

Dr Becca: Really?

J: Really.

Dr Becca [pouty face]: But...but...oh, fine.  But the party WILL be epicsauce, you know!

J: Mmm-hmm.

    Ha! This reminds me of some of the words (twords maybe? twitter + words?) I've learned and sometimes I mention them to hon who looks at me all puzzled. Oh you guys are so funny.

    This silly little conversation is awesomesauce.

    This needs to be performed somewhere before you leave for New Job City. Off Broadway, probably. But if you did it on Broadway, maybe at the Imperial or Palace!

    I hope you have a curtain you can draw in your living room to signal the end of a scene.

    Hahahaha, if I got that invite, I would assume that you would be debuting a new and excellent BBQ sauce on the grill.

  • Sandra says:

    I'm with J, I've never heard of Epicsauce, but now that you've mentioned it, I kind of like it. Plus it was worth learning the word to read this exchange. I like how you don't use violence against him.

    • Dr Becca says:

      Welcome to the blog, Sandra! I hope to be the source of many more neologisms for you in the future. And yes, our relationship has a strict "no violence" policy.

    Who says 'epicsauce'? Even on the internet I haven't seen it. But it is kind of cool sounding. I once convinced a German postdoc in my lab, while I was a grad student, that 'plad' was another word for 'cool', and that all hip people used it. After a while he kept saying stuff was 'really plad' —with his German accent— and everybody just sort looked at him weirdly.

    When in doubt, blame the gamer!
