What's in a middle-aged
person's vocabulary from when they were pretty young things. it is exceptionally obvious when a.) the oldie in question is presenting a motivational
speech to a bunch of bored high
school kids and wants them to think they are 'hap'nin' but doesn't know the correct
speech anymore, b.) when said
oldie decided to write a 'convincing' teen
novel. Is also apparent on the 'made for teens' websites you have to visit for school, where you're so enraptured in the hip language
that you don't realize you're learning! *yay*
of my new motivational book
Kyle: What's up Verne, you're looking tubular today!
Verne: Man, hey! Don't block my style. Anyway, I was wondering if you'd heard of the totally far-out website that helps teens like us help kids all over the world.
Kyle: Man, what a trip! Let's start making a difference!
