Today’s lesson is an introduction to couple words. Couple words are two words that indicate the same thing. Their origin can be traced back to the popular dialogue in the 80s – ‘Aur Kaam Kaaj Kaisa Chal Raha Hai?’

Couple words act as great conversation fillers and are beautifully cringeworthy.

Examples:

Football Shootball Haye Rabba

Shaadi Vaadi

Paise Shaise

and the epic combo, Dil Vil Pyar Vyar.

However, one needs to be really careful while using them in a conversation. You see, I was talking to this lady today and after the usual ‘aakhir uski life meri life se boring kaise’ bits, we reached a point in conversation where you had to use a conversation filler like ‘Aur batao’. I decided to go with a couple-word.

So I asked her: “Aur saving-shaving ho rahi hai aaj kal?”

I think I’ll never find out the answer to that question.
