What a spectacular word. No other word so deftly implies a sense of insincerity and melodrama.
- My 12 year old cousin to her parents, after I dunked her in the pool when we were kids.He almost drownded me!
-Incubus, "Calgone"Brandon: God, look what you fucking did Gavin, you fucking almost erased the entire track, please fuckin....
Gavin: Sorry, I fucked up man. I was just sitting here trying to film.
Mike: Did he erase it?
Brandon: No, he...very...well...could have
- Some random emo youtuber.Fox News, I demand an apology. I demand you play the entire clip, in which I almost break into tears, because I care about these people that suffer; because I know that if I were in their position, I would want help.
- Backseat driversYou almost got us killed!
- "Intimidating" peopleI almost kicked his ass right then and there.
Can anyone think of any more funny instances when "almost" has been used?
