Oh, shut up: How to end an irksome conversation, politely or otherwise | Ervolino.

I was watching one of those highly educational British television shows last week, when a couple of amusing words and phrases jumped out at me and inspired today’s thrilling ruminations.

OK, if you must know, I was watching Season 5 of “Love Island UK” — because Season 8, the most recent season, ended two months ago, and I’ve been heartsick ever since.

If you’ve never seen “Love Island UK” on Hulu — which I prefer to its American knockoff, “Love Island USA” on Peacock — it’s one of those compelling reality shows where super-attractive 20-somethings go to a lush, private villa in Spain, sit by the pool in their thongs and Speedos, work on their tans and struggle mightily to find L-O-V-E.
