Yo, yo, yo dawg, what’s crackin’? Don’t chuck a spaz on me, peeps. I’m just practicin’ my slang, so I’ll know what the heck these teenagers are sayin’ when they whiz around me at the traffic light or knock me down at the mall. About once a week I have to Google a slang term that my child or someone younger than my shoes has thrown at me. I usually nod like I know what they’re talkin’ about and then rush to the computer for a word vomit. I try to be sneaky about it so as not to fly my freak flag but stayin' cool after 40 is soooo fornever. Even wearing my dress flops don’t help, and don’t even think about a good push. Sometimes this generation gap seems as large as those flyboy jeans you gotta’ hold up with one hand. Poor Hubby, he doesn’t even stand a chance. He’s lost the shizzle to his fizzle. He’s always asking me to clue him in. The word that stumped him this week? Poser.
So you won’t be all confusinger here’s the definition:

poser - a person who habitually pretends to be something he is not
Showoff, exhibitionist-someone who deliberately behaves in such a way as to attract attention

Okay, now that I know what it is I think I qualify, but (sigh) I'm still not hip.

Oh..don't even get me started on that!! I spend 10 minutes on the phone talking to my nephews or my friend's son and then I spend the next 30 minutes looking up words and phrases!!!
So tell me....when we were young (though, you might be younger than me!), our language and slang wasn't that bad, was it?!?!?! I'm going to check and see if there is a "Slang of the 70's" dictionary!!

And really...you were quite the little photo-posing-(not poser)-cutie-patootie weren't you?!!?!
Absolutely gorgeous photos!!! I think the one in the window is my favorite!!!
