What lingos did you use in your day? And do you still use them?

A day is like a dollar. It can be spent wisely or foolishly.

Grip- a large amount of something.


Fro'n it- A person with messy or unkempt hair. Usually a person with wavy or curly hair.

(I think my 6th grade teacher coined this to promote her side hair cutting business.)


Dopeass- another word for "cool".


Mack- to kiss


Lead Pencils- any pencil that is not able to be sharpened. Ex. Mechanical pencils and pop-a-point pencils

I don't really use these terms. I think they are silly and extremely regional. If I did used them a lot of the people I talked to would have no idea what the hell I was talking about.

I used to have a paper of such slang terms that was written by a beautiful and older drug addict woman I knew as a teenager. The term I remember most was "dirtnap" which is what you would be said to be taking when you were extremely tired (ie, similar to dead and in the ground.) It was funny and clever. Unfortunately, I don't have the paper any more. I left it, along with a full file cabinet of papers and some other things I wish I still had, once when I had to leave town with little time and little money.

Funny! The exact opposite of the regular meaning, to me.

About the "lead pencils" I only called them that cause my friends did. I've been using that term on and off for about 20 years now, and my dad still has no idea what I'm talking about.

I even used the term in a comic I wrote, but I lost the comic. I'll check my computer to see if I scanned it.


Apparently it's not regional. I replied to this comment from a youtube video.

"i m in georgia´╗┐ an me cull it LED pencils'"

It's interesting. I guess the mechanical and pop-a-point pencils do use lead too (or rather, graphite) but it is the same stuff as in wood pencils. It reminds me of something that I have heard a lot, only as an adult, which is "ink pen".

"Fro'n it" is a new one to me.

It depends on the time frame. In the 80's I was using words like "psyche!" and "eat one" and "josh off".

A friend of mine had a lingo so predictable that I had kind of adopted a whole series of them and used them together as a single phrase. "What up? You be suckin'. You laugh but hey..."

Well there are other types of pens besides "ink pens". There are also gel pens which are usually used for scrap booking.

But a "pen", by default, uses ink. And a gel pen has a particular type of ink, right?

It's like saying "cloth shirt" to me, in that it seems redundant. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. I guess I just find it peculiar...which is what makes it 'lingo'.

Or "metal coin", or "wooden tree", or "liquid water"...

It made me think about when I was really little like under 3. When I was learning the names of animals I would say "rabbit bunny".

I can be a redundant talker in real life. And sometimes that annoys people. :/
