I have NEVER heard 'lit' in conversation before this moment.

It used to drive me nuts when young people constantly used the word 'like'. It seemed to find itself inserted, 'like' into sentences in 'like' inappropriate places.

I remember my parents getting frazzled over my sister and I using the word 'cool'. Cool has had some hang time though. People of all ages seem to use the word, which is pretty 'cool'!

I know it's old. It's old as it is irritating! My 40 year old neighbor is stuck in the 'LIKE' rut!

Bud it is kind of funny when age inappropriate words are used by older people. IE - an 80 year old saying dude. Well unless he is a way old surfer. Which nobody in my area is, but some old guys think they are being "cool or hip" (allthethings)

My kid's friends say that all the time. Fortunately, he doesn't say it that often and when he does, it's in the context of video games.

He does use the terms "squeaker," "cringey" and "sick."

A "squeaker" is another kid he refuses to play an online game with because their voice sounds "cringey" over in his "sick" headset. ;)

Yeah? Well, when I was in school, "That's lit!" meant "We're launching rockets and you're about to get one up your a@@, you dingbat!"
