Slang Words Your Kids Use
This post couldn't have come at a better time! Just yesterday, Macy said something to me, and I had no idea what it ment. I feel like I need an interpreter or subtitles underneath her whenever she talks to me nowadays. Anyway, here's a list of some of the words kids are using, and what they actually mean.
1. "Lit." It doesn’t mean you're drunk or wasted anymore. It means something's cool. Like, "That party was lit."
2. "Turnt." It can mean two things. You're either really hyped about something, or you're ON something. Sometimes it's used like a synonym for "effed up."
3. "Clap back." It's when you respond with a clever comeback. Like, "He kept teasing me, but he wasn't expecting me to clap back."
4. "Thirsty." It means you're desperate, especially when it comes to dating.
5. "Fire." Kids use it as an adjective now. It basically means something's hot. Like, "That new song is straight fire."
6. "Woke." It's like the opposite of being ignorant. If you're "woke," it means you're smart and pay attention.
7. The letter "V." It's short for "very." Like instead of saying your friend is "very good" at something, you just say, "She's V good."
Thanks to USA Today for interpreting our teens for us!
