The need has arisen. Tsk. I should stop misinterpreting stuff. Also, I should stop blogging during work hours, noh. But Twitter said that it was raining (yes I’m lazy, as are you) so all the more reason for me to seek distraction from the rains and the clouds and all things not sunny.
Coming back to the ‘need’, my ‘haw’ has been used, misused, overused and generated a truckload of questions for these third-party users, haw! I hardly use it now (especially in comparison to those who do!), coming to think of it 😮 See, for those who know me, you would also be familiar with ‘current words’ or ‘word(s) of the week(s)’. I will refrain from recalling them on a public forum such as this (that also collects amass of readers, not!) and our ‘haw’ here too, is one of such.
The beginnings of ‘haw’ starts with the emoji on display. My super-fancy Windows 7.8 phone** (that doesn’t allow the upgrade to version 8 *grumble*) got the ‘new’ whatsapp emojis quite late in the day and I was quite taken up by this little bastard of a face. It automatically generated a ‘haw’ factor. HAW!
Since that day on however, its interpretation has been very contextual and it is oft used instead of “aww”, “oh!”, “oh, fuck”, “oh, poor you” and wherever else, that sounds ‘haw-ly’ appropriate.
Sorry if this wasn’t as informative as I had mapped it out in that pretty little head of mine, but realised that I couldn’t give out separate definitions with examples etc as it is bloody contextual.
So use the ‘haw’ wisely, my friend.
Hope you find sunshine amidst the darkened skies.
