::If sometimes when Mariah speaks and she says things like 'Lamb'
::or 'Chops' and you don't quite understand them, well here is a
::dictionary list of the most common Mariahisms!::
::YOU LOVE ME::
::All-purpose, anytime phrase. A greeting, a ::goodbye, or just something to throw into a ::pause in the coversation or to interject ::loudly while someone is speaking.
::COMPLETE AND TOTAL MESS::
::A classic phrase at this point - referring to ::anything getting on one's nerves or just ::said as a casual throwaway when the ::explanation is too long.
::Said in the same accent as 'Complete joke' ::or 'Complete mess' with emphasis on the ::consonants and a slight whistle effect on
::the end 'se'.::
::YEAH, AND HEY...::
::Said together as a verbal pause in the
::following ways Sometimes while resigning ::due to the realization that you can't change :::something or someone - i.e. whatever - not ::said angrily, though. A random transition ::(said slowly) - i.e. 'yeah...and hey---'. Here ::'yeah' is a tone or two higher than 'hey'. It ::is necessary to pause between the 'yeah' ::and the 'and'.::
::When a hush falls upon a crowd of two or ::more people, it is also appropriate to say. ::We all know why!
::A term of endearment - e.g. 'You're my ::lamb' or 'Hey, lamb!' - when addressing a ::loved one or close friend. My use of this ::term originated from a story told to me by ::the "Grammy nominated Trey Lorenz" ::dating back a few years which would not be ::politically correct to repeat! 'Lamb' is also ::another term of endearment for her fans.
::Same as Lamb but used when one is a little ::more familiar with you.::
::A derivative of 'lamb' - e.g. 'Hi Chops!'- the ::male variation on the same theme. This ::does not mean you can not call a girl ::'chops', or a boy 'lamb', they're unisex.::
::Used when at a loss for words. It's basically ::a safe haven - you may choose to add a ::quick vibrato on the end of 'dear' ::depending on how deep the situation is.::
::HEY, MIGHT AS WELL...IF YOU GOT A LITTLE EXTRA::
::Said in the same accent as "yeah...and hey" ::with a tad more zest - e.g. A waiter ::approaches with the question, 'Would you ::care for something to drink?' Your ::response could be, "Hey - if they got a little ::extra in the back and ain't nobody else
::drinkin' it... might as well...fill me up a ::glass" - or something of that nature.
::IF THAT'S GONNA MAKE YOU HAPPY::
::Basically said in a sarcastic manner - i.e. ::who am I? It's all about you! e.g. When ::someone is clearly only interested in their ::own point of view. For instance, "Please, ::try the halibut, I insist." You could respond ::with, "Hey...might as well - if that's gonna ::make you happy." (even if you hate ::halibut!) And then proceed to order ::something else!
