A device (maybe built into a cell-phone; why not, everything else is...) which monitors conversations and alerts the wearer to the possibility of embarrassing repetition. You know, the way some people, well, you know, use the same you know phrases again and again, without ever, you know, noticing.

I'm an 'absolutely' overuser, and I can't help it.

Because, I've read, like, (you know what I'm sayin') *literally* thirty in the past few days and, you know, some of them were kind of keen, but, like, most of 'em didn't technically apply to me, *per se*. You know what I'm sayin'?

(God, I must sound like an idiot in person, as well as online.)
