You Got Swag You Cray-Cray Peep

Ok, like gag me with a spoon.  I guess every generation has their own lingo.  But really.  I can’t even have a conversation with these kids without a translator.  What are they talking about?

So, I looked up some of the definitions of these “words.”  Here is a list that I compiled to help parents try to understand their child:

  • Sweet = beyond cool
  • YOLO = You Only Live Once
  • Noob = when someone doesn’t know basic pop culture
  • LOL = Laugh Out Loud
  • Sick = awesome or cool
  • Hater = referred to as someone who is angry or jealous because of their success
  • Swag = being cool
  • Reach = attending an event
  • My Mains = group of friends
  • Rachet = someone who is rude and obnoxious
  • Flex = someone who likes to show off
  • Dope = cool or slick
  • Derp = dumbass
  • Dip = leaving a party
  • Chirp = to insult someone

Just don’t try to talk like this.  It’s really not “sweet” at our age and they’ll let you know.

Something else I’ve noticed:  the shortening of words.  The Kid will say things like “she’s presh” (precious).  Or “I’m hun” (hungry).  My personal favorite: “that’s cray” (crazy).

The next time you have a conversation with your teen, try this: “so, like did you have a bitchin’ day?  My day was so bangin’.  I saw this bimbette wearing this totally barfsome outfit.  I was like gross me out the door.”  See if they follow.  Totally gnarly dude.
