Growing up, we all cringed when adults tried to speak like us kids. It’s the same sad, weird feeling we get now when we hear some new slang term that just doesn’t make sense to us. Aging is totally a thing and our vocabulary ages with us. One day your grandchildren will come to you and ask what “LOL” means — that’s just how time works. Language is a beautiful thing that constantly evolves and changes over time.
Do you still say groovy? How about “as if”? There’s no doubt that the words we use are a result of the time in which we grew up. Sometimes, we just don’t know the newest slang, and it can become glaringly apparent how old you are. Or at least how old you speak. Do you talk your age? Are you trying to be more youthful or sound more grown up? We’re going to reveal your true age based on how you use words. Ready? Set? Let’s get going!
