Teenage Terminologies...And I Thought Pig Latin Was Tough!

OK, I am somewhat recovered from my shopping spree with my two daughters, also somewhat perplexed...again. Ever actually talk to a teen?

I was in the beatnik/hippie generation growing up. We introduced Maynard G. Krebbs and his lingo. Parents were outraged. What the hell were these kids talking about? Why do you call everybody man? What does Cowabunga mean? What's with all the flowers?

Amazing how times change while not changing isn't it? OK, here's a few terms I picked up that were completely new to me.

1. Shovies. "We needed to stop on the way home and pick up some shovies." WTF is a shovie?? Tampon.

2. Prairie Doggin or Turtle Headin. "Dude, pit stop I'm prairie doggin." Having to poop so bad that it is making a partial appearance and then retracted.

3. Flipper. "Like...she's such a flipper." A girl that goes from face up to face down with agility, ease, and predictability. Vaginal/anal I reckon.

There are more...as I began recalling them for this blog...I accidently started to recall the shopping as well. I need another drink.

Hmm, I'm going to have to give that some thought. So...you're saying that all young people are young, or just the ones that aren't very old?

Anemone it's my pleasure to aid in the enlightening of parents. I only have another 7 years and they're out of their teens.

I'm a dead man.

Prairie Doggin has been around for a while. It was used in one of the Vacation movies with Chase. The daughter said it at some point.

Shovies? I bet you cringed at that one. I thought calling then plugs was bad.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

I feel your pain, TDA1. Today I was eating at McWendy King and had the opportunity to listen to a gang of teenage kids talking amongst themselves. I can't tell you what they said because I didn't understand enough of the lingo to even be able to derive any possible meanings from the contex. I do better puzzling out Spanish and Italian based on common Latin root words thanI did with these kids.

*sigh*

So much for being such a cunning linguist

Being that I am not much older than any of the "kids" you are referring to, you would think that I can relate to them. But, most of the time I don't have a clue as to what they are talking about either! I think that is the point. Kids make up their own lingo specifically so adults won't know what is going on! Think about it, we all had code words that no one understood when we were younger. I know I had alot of them! Then again, I wasn't the good girl then that I am today. lmao

Stuffies????? We call them tampoons, or just poons in our house.........

I recall a story a friend of mine told me about a group of teen aged girls he overheard. Seems one of them need to use the facilities in a rather urgent way. One of her friends told her to "give her flaps a twist". He works in a heavy trade, lots of foul language going on, and this caught him off guard.........he was in shock.

I have heard prairie doggin' refered to as "touching cloth", and if it goes beyond that "puddin'in a cloud".

We parents speak a language that teens cannot understand. We use words like JOB, RESPONSIBILITY, NO!........Like I said before, all we can do is love them....

Madness takes its toll. Exact change please!

Sin I think you have it. I'm beginning to believe alcohol was in fact invented for and by parents.
