There is a plethora of ways I still manage to embarrass my young adult children, such as sitting on the floor to tie my shoes and sliding down the driveway before I shovel it.
But what really annoys “the kiddos” is my outdated vocabulary.
According to them, no one refers to the “telephone” any more or orders “seltzer” at a restaurant or “coasts” on a sled or takes a “tub” or searches something on “the internet” or yells “shazam!” when they get a good score in Scrabble or gets “bummed out” or “so psyched” or asks “Shall we?” to get people’s rears in gear. (For that matter, no one says “rears in gear” any more either…. or “for that matter”)
Know any other outdated terms you can contribute to my list of “Clueless Mom” expressions?
