Little Miss Bin used this for a while but we soon sorted that out! I can recall asking her what she had for her school lunch:
Little Miss Bin: It was, like, spaghetti
Pedal Bin: Ok. So what was it then. Noodles?
LMB: No, no. It was, like, you know,like, pasta.
PB: Right. So something like pasta but not actually pasta then. So something like spaghetti.
LMB: No. It was was, like, spaghetti.
PB: Yes you said sweet heart. I am just trying to think what is like spaghetti but not actually spaghetti. Linguine was it? That's like spaghetti but a but thicker and flatter. Should we ask Mum she know lots about pasta.
LMB: No Dad! I said it was, like, spaghetti!
PB: Do not shout at me young lady. Now what sauce did this "like spaghetti" come with?
LMB: It came with, like, bolognese sauce.
PB: Like bolognese sauce? Good Lord what are they feeding you at school. I shall have to phone your Head Teacher. Just plain tomato sauce was it?
LMB: I was like, you know, like spaghetti bolognese!! Like we had the other night.
PB: No, no my dear. We actually had spaghetti bolognese not "like" spaghetti bolognese. Which, like, you like, would be, you know, like, like, you know like something, like different. Like.
Mrs Bin: WILL YOU TWO SHUT UP!
PB: Have I, like, upset you then? Like.
