Sorry i wasnt there to rescue you after that one Liz!;)

I think everyone agrees that the worst feeling in the world when you are a wee'un is seeing your ice-cream hit the ground, in that split second, your world has fallen apart. So if youre ever upset, don't be too surprised if you hear someone saying, 'Youve a face on ye like youve dropped yer poke'.

btw, 'Wee'un' (pronounced 'Wayne') means 'Child'. Hence the joke about what John Wayne called his children.....

My circle of friends/family share a strange slange that is everchanging. A lot of it is hard to reproduce online. Then again, it's probably pretty funny to other random people.

I've recently been trying to bring the words "tubular" and "radical" back. (meaning great, super cool, excellent etc.)

Some stuff we/I say frequently (but that many of you probably use and know):
-"that's key"
-"fo shiggity/fo shizzle/ fo sho"
-"i got hammed last weekend" (got smashedl/liquored/drunk last weekend)
-and of course if you add "ass" to anything, it adds emphasis: I'm tired-ass.
-"you're on crack"= you're crazy
-"crackums"= nickname
-and i like to refer to everyone as my bitches. "hey bitches! what up?"
-"RAH RAH" well, i don't even really know what that means... it's more of a random voice that surfaces every now and again.

I'm sure there's more, but it's pretty unconscious and just happens, so I can't even think of anything right now.
