If you are reading this, chances are you are above the age of 35 or you're an old soul trapped in a 20-something's body. These days it seems like you can't have a normal conversation with a millennial without them casually throwing a slang word into the conversation. I'm guilty of using quite a few slang words and sometimes I forget I am not around my fellow millennials all the time when I use them and these people who don't know the slang look at me like I have a speech impediment. While it is not professional to use slang when speaking, sometimes these words can express your personality and add a little life into the conversation. For all of you out there that have no idea what some of us millennials are saying sometimes, here are a couple slang terms broken down for you.
This is lit(erally) one of my favorite slang words. Urban Dictionary defines lit as: "When something is turned up or popping." You would use this word to describe an event such as a party or concert. Example: "That party was lit last night."
Urban Dictionary defines bae as: "Before anyone else; a term of affection commonly used to describe your significant other or crush." You would use this term to describe your S.O. to another person. Example: "Bae came and surprised me at work yesterday."
6. On Fleek
Urban Dictionary defines dead as: "When you're past the point of something being hilariously funny; when you've laughed as hard as you possibly can. You would use this term when something is so funny that "haha" or "lol" isn't cutting it." Example: "I'm dead, that joke was too much."
