Thursday Thirteen

As a teacher of 11-13 year olds, I have heard my fair share of slang words.
 Here are 13 words I wish would just go away!

1. Bae (short for baby) 

2. Yaaasss! (Yes plus excitement) 

3. Wifey (married woman)

4. Lit (cool or high on drugs or alcohol)

5. Woke (culturally or politically aware)

 6. GOAT (Greatest of all time) 

7. Extra (over the top) 

8. Keep it 100 (keeping it real)

 9. Savage (someone who doesn’t care) 

10. Bruh (means bro, often pronounced bra)

11. Squad (friend group) 

12. Cray-Cray (crazy)

13. Snatched (you look great)

  1. Oh, they'll all go away, to be replaced with new ones in a few years! I remember my older brother saying "cherry" for anything that in my day was "groovy!" Now he's nearly 75 and says "groovy." I didn't know what GOAT meant!

  2. I still say "Cool" as that was big when I was young. I'm a little young for "groovy" - it was out of fashion by the time I hit my teens. I don't understand the "woke" thing - or why it is apparently bad.

  3. My generation said "cool" too. I know what you mean. Certain words can be irritating.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
