The Etymology (Origin) of “Heck”
I want to say WTH but it’s become a cliché for me so I’ll state my theory on how the word came into being instead. As you ought to know, people in the English-speaking community have this expression, what the. More specifically, there’s what the hell and what the fuck. The way I absorb it, what the heck originated from the two — “he” from hell and “ck” from fuck. Perhaps the main reason that the word, or should I say the whole expression, was brought up is for it to become more acceptable and neutral (whatever). With all honesty, I haven’t read anything about this yet. I actually kind of firmly believe that my guess is true. :tongue:

In my previous post I was talking about getting too much excited about Friday. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever be wishing for that day to come again. Haha. Last Friday was the worst session we had. It finally convinced me that there really is such thing as a drunk person and not being able to remember everything (or anything at all!) the following day. The dorm staff that night even had to check up on me. Luckily, we were still not summoned by the dorm manager to discuss it. We didn’t do any damage to the dorm nor to any resident after all. The only thing that I’m regretting about is the fact that I lost my ATM cards that night. I have no idea how it got away out of my pocket. Now, I am absolutely broke. I badly need a big amount of money especially for the coming Y4iT — registration fee and transportation fare — this September in UP Diliman. Somebody, help me! If I need to resort to prostitution then I’d be very glad to. 😆 :laugh: J/K
