A few years back, I was corrected on my use of 'Netflix and chill' and what it really means. Haha!

Just yesterday, I received a follow-up e-mail from a professional workshop I attended (given by a lawyer no less!), that included 'thanks for hooking up with us.'

Uh, did he really write that? Am I super silly to be sniggering at what the 'kids these days' consider a hook up?

To the best part of the "new slang" is that the speakers have no idea of what I mean when I say they are speaking the colloquial language of the day.
Of course they can't make change, or tell time from an old fashioned clock face either.

Cool!  Cool thread and a phrased kids might use!  At least the ones I am around.

Some of our residents here go "doogie hunting."

(I don't even know how to spell that! Does it have a 'k' instead of a 'g'?)

With lots of deer and elk passing through, it's an easily gathered garden fertilizer!

This thread makes me think of one of my favorite phrases:
