SLICE OF LIFE – WHERE HAVE ALL THE PHRASES GONE?

Every Tuesday Two Writing Teachers provide an opportunity to share your writing.

The other day someone asked me how I liked a restaurant I recently visited.  During the course of the conversation I heard myself using “old school” and “back in the day”.  I wondered to myself when these two phrases had crept into my vocabulary. This led me down a rabbit hole of thinking about all the words of my youth that I would so easily bandy about.  When did I stop using these words?  Did I just one day wake up and not use or even think about using or remembering some of these words:

  • groovy
  • cool beans
  • go go boots
  • bee hive hairdo
  • smokes
  • O P’s
  • draft dodger
  • tricky dicky
  • bra burner
  • a happening
  • 8 track
  • mix tape
  • Member’s Only Jacket

Do you remember this hairstyle?  FLIP

  • flip – I was always in search of the perfect flip.

SUNRISE, SUNSET

SWIFTLY PASS THE PHRASE

ONE WORD FOLLOWING ANOTHER

LADEN WITH HAPPINESS AND TEARS.

Wishing you words filled with happy memories,
