As 20 somethings, my husband and I are kind of oblivious to the fact that the English language as we know it is changing. So I of course needed a cheat sheet, and I thought I’d share it with you.
-“Like a Boss”
“I just parallel parked like a boss”. I am assuming this phrase originated in a mob, which of course we should all aspire to do things as competently as a mob boss.
“I totes just set my tote in a puddle”. I know; this one is imperative. T-o-t-e-s means totally but because the word totally is totes waaaayyy too long it's easier to say totes. A tote, of course is a type of handbag. However, if you have more than one tote this could totes be confusing.
“WHY does my brother photobomb every decent pic?”. This is what you call it when you take a cute picture with someone and upon further inspection you realize your brother is mooning the camera in the background.
“Did you see **** was wearing mint polish with a emerald green maxi? That girl’s cray-cray!” Don’t think I need to explain this one.
Now you can continue your scintillating conversations without stumbling when someone says something cray-cray. And remember, you must abbreviate everything because using a full word in a full sentence is so 2011.
