old knobs

There’s something about every word kids use today that makes me feel like an old person who knows words too well to want to listen to them poorly utilized.  Here is a list of words I would be happy never to hear again:

  • Awkward
  • Legit
  • Epic
  • [Not a word, but a phrase:] “In all honesty…”
  • “For real”
  • Bro
  • Totes
  • Toight (like tight, with an inserted ‘o’, for the old people reading)
  • Vajeen (gross)

And although it’s not on the list, you kids are totes ruining ‘bacon’ for me.  Bacon was MY thing.  Stop liking it so it won’t be all over every t-shirt!

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
