Expressions That Show Your Age
 
# 1 : Monday 30-12-2019 @ 13:04
 
 
Expressions like “shooting the breeze” (Gaire homepage) or “malarkey” (Joe Biden’s campaign) show our age.

Is it a bad thing (we are out of touch, to think like them you need to speak like them) or a good one (we are authentic, we do not pander to youthism’s idiosyncrasies)?

Any such expression you cringe when you hear yourself say it?

I had an aunt who insisted on abbreviating most words, thinking she sounded cool.
I preferred to hear my uncle use an imperfect subjunctive: he was in tune with himself, even if others thought he was a pedantic old fart.

We all do.
We sometimes show that we try to hide it.
We are better off embracing it.

I definitely cringe harder when older people try to look or speak cooler than their age.

The kids of today they use the word "Like" about three times in each sentence or more

I am using “coola boola” and “happy days” way too much.
I only started as an adult, as my ex-husband was using them all the time. I remain attached to them...
