I was hypertasking when my main squeezie came over to glomp me. I said, "That was the awesome," and gave him a shaka ...No, this isn't a scene from a steamy romance novel in progress -- it's me showing off some newly-acquired urban vocabulary. (Translation: While I was talking on the phone and writing my blog entry at the same time, my husband came over to give me a much appreciated hug.) Don't worry, I'm not midlifing. (Definition: an older person using urban slang in everyday conversation -- not yet in the urban dictionary; see midlife crisis.) But if you love words and the evolution of language as much as I do, why not sign up to get the dictionary's word of the day in your mailbox? I can't guarantee that the content won't be edgy or even outrightly rank, but playing around with language is always all grapes, right?
