Conversate and basically

Personally, the word conversate leaves a yucky taste in my mouth. If it
becomes more popular, then it probably will stop doing so. Just as I've come
to like asparagus and broccoli, one day I might come to like conversate.
Right now, however, I don't. And even though I think it still sounds silly,
"That's not my fortay," no longer sounds yucky to me.
