Niceo Biceo: A History

"Niceo biceo!"
"Huh?" Randy said.

And that's when I realized niceo biceo was before his time.

"What's niceo biceo?" He said. "Is that a pop culture reference? Is it an o-girl thing like braids & string cheese?"

And that's when I realized that niceo biceo deserves a written history.

When I was in high school, I met someone who said things like, "sicky-sick" and "checkity-check-check." Did I think this was cool? Oh no. No, no, no. I thought it was the dorkiest thing in the world. And that's what made it so funny.

Taking cue from that, I wanted my very own made-up way to speak. And so I came up with the following formula:

Using the word "word" as our example...

+ O
x 2
- the first letter of the second one
+ replacing it with b
wordo bordo
(Of course, it's pronounced werd-o bird-o, but you get the point.)

Anyway, this wayo-bayo of speaking started around the end of 11th grade and only grew in popularity until graduation. There was hardly a girl I knew who didn't catch on. As a matter of fact, Sara once caught herself saying niceo biceo and then exploded that I'm taking over the world one person's speech at a time.

At any rate, I think it's about time I bring niceo-biceo back.

Did I tell you that I saw Ms. Pav.? Serious hotness!

She was a little weirded out by me, I'll tell you, but that's okay. I would be too if someone ran after me down Lexington shouting my name and flailing her arms. Not that I was flailing my arms, but you get the point. :)

High school reunion, can I come!?

I figure, if a girl with a really hispanic last name can, according to facebook, but an alumae of your school, I could be too, right?
