you ever think about how weird it is that the word "hello" as a greeting is only like 200 years old and before then it was like exclusively an expression of surprise

also everyone should constantly be lamenting that we live in a world where thomas edison got his way and we say "hello" when picking up the phone instead of alexander graham bell's suggestion, which was that we answer the phone by saying "ahoy"


@prophet_goddess this is why i always say "hewwo?" fuck edison
