New Speak

Image result for teen slang words

“That’s totally atmospheric,” the teenage daughter said to her father.

“Yeah,” said her brother. “I’m totally down with that.”

“I’m gonna be throwing some kinda shade at my squad once they find out we scored those tiks,” the girl said.

“That arena’s gonna be totally lit,” the boy said.

“Hundo P, bruh,” the girl said. “Totally goat.”

The father had been listening to this back and forth between his son and daughter and was scratching his head. “Excuse me,” he said. “But are you happy I was able to get you two tickets for that concert or not?”

“No, Dad, it’s super Gucci,” the girl said.

“Definitely dope,” the boy said.

“What language are you two speaking?” the father said. “It’s certainly not the English I know.”

“You need to get woke, Dad,” the boy said.

“Yeah, Dad,” the girl said. “I can’t even!”

The father sighed. “Whatever happened to a simple thank you?” he said.

Finally his daughter came up to him, put her arms around his neck, and said, “Chillax, Dad. We’re totally turnt.”

“Totally,” he said, and smiled at her.


Written for today’s one-word prompt, “atmospheric.”
