I’m in my early 30s, youngster free, divorced, and a variety of my shut pals are of their 20s, some nonetheless in school. They joke and name me mother. After which they begin breaking out the present slang and I’m similar to, “Wait. Is that good? Is it unhealthy? What does that even imply?” My favourite is after they use a phrase as slang and I pull out the precise dictionary definition and I simply get clean stares.
Enjoyable story, I used to be an ER nurse whereas the slang “a minute” was getting used for any timeframe in any respect. I triaged a man into my ER who was having “chest ache,” and each time I attempted to ask him when the ache began, how lengthy it lasted, and so forth., the response was “It lasted for ‘a minute.’ It began in a ‘minute.’” And that’s precisely what I typed into the triage report, phrase for phrase.
I suppose I actually am “mother.” I’ll put on my “uncool, outdated” badge proudly. 🙂
