    I like the two-letter words. If, is, an, we, etc. One and it's just a letter. More than two means they ran out of the more concise words.
    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.

    Interesting.

    Usually followed by a "wow, I have never thought of it that way." Because it's a great word to politefully acknowledge what someone has said and excuse yourself from the rest of the conversation. Analogous to other stop expressions, namely ones used in texts, like "K," Or "lol."

    indefatigable - for the awkwardness, the Brits had a battlecruiser thus named in WW1, always thought the crew must have groaned every time they had to spit that word out.
