so for all you folks of the elder variety that have trouble with slang terms like s'up (what is up), 'm whichu (I am with you), that's sick (that's awesome), that's gross (I really like that),
wicked (good)... I'm here to give you some encouragement!
I'm of this slang generation, and I've been trying to figure out this term my friends and those younger than me keep using...the term is "holla." see with all those other slang terms I listed before, they all either have the normal meaning in them already (just shortened), or they are cleverly the opposite of the what the websters dictionary describes them as.
but "holla?" what the frick does that mean? websters defines "holler" (which I'm assuming is where "holla" comes from) 1. to shout; yell. 2. a shout. I still fail to see how when someone says, "hey, I really think that coat you are wearing is sick..." (see I'm with this conversation until...) and the person with the coat says back, "Holla!"
did I miss something? you're friend just said your coat was awesome and you say "o.k., quick, go shout real loud noises..."
what happened to "thanks" (thank you).
So for those of you folks who are reading this that have never understood the slang of my generation...be encouraged because on this one, I am one of you.
