Last week Joe told me I was too old to say “totally cray.”
I asked him if he thought I was to old to say “asshole.”
When I posted the above on Facebook, my friend Sylvia sent me this article from the Huffington Post.
I think I will unfriend Sylvia. Cause she is totes cray-cray.
(Not really Sylvia. I don’t have friends to spare. But you are cray-cray—in the best possible way.)
Here is the breakdown of things you should not say if you are over 30.
(Again, according to Huff Po.)
2. I know, right??
4. Cray (Or Cray-Cray )
5. I Will Cut You. [Really? Who is cray enough to say that?]
I am well over 30 and have used all those terms except “amazeballs” and “I will cut you.”
Now I am determined to find the perfect time to say “amazeballs.”
During a meeting at work would be good.
“Oh my gosh! You won an award for that terrific article?! You are totes amazeballs!”
I work with writers, editors and super smart techy web people—all of whom have extensive vocabularies.
They know mine is pedestrian at best.
So if I throw out “amazeballs” during our next production meeting, they will kindly ignore me—then ask each other later if my meds are being adjusted again.
Sometimes I have to write down a word they say in a meeting, then google it when I get back to my desk.
The first time I heard the word largesse, I swear I heard “large ass!”
I AM NOT KIDDING!
“Because of Kim’s large ass, we will be able to purchase new computers.”
Huff Po forgot to include “Epic fail.”
My teen has told me not to say epic fail.
I am an epic fail at not saying epic fail.
Y’all have a great weekend. Subscribe or I will cut you!
JK! (Needed to get that one in before I hit 50, and I don’t think it would go over well at work!)
