“Fingers Crossed” is something people keep saying and doing about tomorrow’s USA President Election Day. Why are people so nervous, superstitious, and cross? We have PTSD (Polls That Sucked Disastrously) (Polls That Skewed Democrat) (President Trump Stress Disorder) from four years ago.
I’m uncrossing my fingers, for now, so I can create this post with these photos:
Fingers crossed that people didn’t lie on the polls, because I am miserable from all the lying and dying of the last four years.
“I Can’t Even”is an Internet slang expression used to indicate that the speaker is in a state of speechlessness, either as a result of feeling overjoyed or exasperated, depending on the context in which it is said. Due to its incomplete sentence structure, the adverb “even” in the expression can be interpreted as a substitute verb for “manage.” On Tumblr, the phrase is often used to caption reaction images in which the subject collapses in frustration or bewilderment.
The earliest known use of the incomplete phrase “I can’t even” was submitted to Urban Dictionary by user JJFADS on January 7th, 2005, defining it as an expression used to indicate a “breaking point.”
I can’t even believe that I had to edit that online definition by adding an “even” to “I can’t” in the second paragraph.
I can’t even explain this coincidence: yesterday, in a therapy group, we discussed how people can become speechless and stunned when encountering thoughtless behaviors from others that are so different from what they would do in a similar situation.
I can’t even count the number of times I’m in a state of speechlessness, these days, when I look at what’s going on in the world.
I can’t even manage my photos because there are so many of them, including these:
