So-ing Machine

So she

So he

So they say

So instead

So it was

So there

The old so-and-so

So it goes

So long

And so on

And so

So La Ti Do

Ah so

So good

So bad

So far

Just so you know

Just so much

Just So


So high

So low


So what



(This is what can happen when one gets obsessed with a word. Such a small one! So useful. So common. So used.)
