Bridging the Generation Gap

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

The youth of today think my English is odd, when I say awesome, I'm referring to God.

' Pot' is a kettle, a 'joint' forms the floor, 'Coke' a soft drink from the corner store.

'Drugs' are used when you're feeling sick, a 'pusher' is someone hardworking and quick.

'Shrink' is a verb on labels and thread, not someone you pay to examine your head.

'Broad' tells the width of a woman or shelf. It doesn't refer to the lady herself.

A 'turkey' is only a very large bird, not a name for a guy who acts like a 'nerd.'

"Gimme five" means money, nothing more. It's never a hand slap for making a score.

Somehow my words have lost their clout; the grandkids don't know what I'm talking about.

But the phrase they use, and I do too, that bridges the gap is, "I LOVE YOU."
