So a new year is upon us, and a new year means changes, hopefully for the better. These changes mean leaving 2012 things in 2012, and some of these things happen to be words and phrases that should just not be carried over into 2013, IMO. Here are a few phrases and words that not only should be left in last year, but also irked the shit out of me whenever I heard them in 2012. Now I’m probably showing my age, but here are some phrases that should be left in past.
While I don’t really have beef with this phrase, what I do have a problem with is the fact that “you only live once” has been said since the begining of time and now all of a sudden this generation’s knock off Al. B Sure, Drake, wants to trademark it. GTFOH.
You ain’t ’bout that life.
I still don’t fully know what the hell this means. Does it mean you don’t know about it because you aren’t in the know?? Or that those that do it are better than you? So many questions, so many answers. I can picture Kanye West telling Jay-Z that he isn’t ’bout that life because he doesn’t wear kilts/skirts.
Get your life.
Just like “you ain’t ’bout that life,” I’m not sure exactly what this means, but yet once again I can picture Kanye West telling someone “dog you ain’t wearing blouses?” Get your life.
Can someone please tell me how the name of a tool became the new ghetto? And thanks to your cousin and them, Philip and Emmanuel Hudson, ratchet has gone mainstream in the form of drag.
Apparently, neither the the Senate nor the House of Representatives have our, the American people’s, best interest in mind because if they did a deal would have been reached months ago. But regardless of whether they reach an agreement or not, I don’t ever want to hear the term Fiscal Cliff again. Call it something else, I don’t care.
Popped/popping a Molly
I understand that every year or so there is a new slang for drugs, in particualar for Ecstasy, but when did we start using the name of the token white girl as slang for drugs?
Well that’s it, that’s all I can think of for now, do you have any phrases or sayings that make you want to slap Momma Dee whenever to add?
Talk to me, I’ll talk back.
