I start many sentences by saying,
As if I were in the middle of saying something profound
or pondering an intricate, delicate, or abstruse Question:
"So... when traveling to Brooklyn
Do you exit Fulton Street station?"
(So here, when I say "so"
I mean therefore.)
But it is not always so.
(So now meaning true.)
Question: "So, do you always eat soup with a spoon?"
"I think so." So meaning yes, not true
Nor therefore as before.
("Yes, of course I eat soup with a spoon you buffoon.")
But.. When I say
"It is soooo good to see you!"
Or, "It is sooo yesterday!"
Sooooo is also so very much like very.
Question: "So, how big is it?"
"So big you can't believe it."
"Yes, that's so."
Meaning, correct. (On whose say so?)
But then again...
Question: "So... how are you feeling?"
So here so
Is a measure of intensity
not like correct, true, therefore,
So... summing up
I've said enough.
So, so long.
