Those were all pretty big when I was in high school, it's only been about seven years, but it feels like decades! Especially when I hear kids saying things like lit or fleek.
"Smarts" as in pain: Ouch- that smarts!!
What is rad? Several people have mentioned it.
As in radical...
Sweet as in "that's a sweet car" or something. Being around middle schoolers all day and having a daughter in high school I've never heard it used. Some people may use it but not as often as I heard it in high school.
Yeah, I'd say that was from the 80's or so.
Groovy, heavy, mod, rad...
I got a groovy set of threads man. Check out my Zoot Suit. Now how bout we go cut a rug.
I say melancholy often 8)
The word is out of style but spooning will never die.

Can I say I'm so glad to never hear anyone say "aight" anymore or "Naa' Mean."
That's a drag

Valise. My father still calls suitcases valises.
That's a good one!👍
Gnarly, trousers, britches, hootenanny, icebox (not very often), and homeskillet!
I'd never heard of homeskillet. I'll see your selections and raise you dame, chick & broad.
Gal, gams, nylons, DA (Ducks Ass). Two bits, Fin, glass packs, curb feelers, moon disk.
Ron just inadvertently reminded me of one in a different thread: whack!
Love your additions.👍Here's one that goes way back. Cross, as in "Don't be cross with me!"
Do people say trousers anymore? Or bloomers?
I think that's different. Men don't wear them anymore. Remember peddle pushers for girls?
Like a broken record
It should be passé but it's still used.
I still say "dressed to the nines".
Out of sight
Those are swell!👌
I was reading the Hardy Boys to my son, and swell came up. Man, he HATED that word. So now whenever I come across it (it's in Nancy Drew, too), I'm supposed to read it as fantastic. 😂
😊There's an I Love Lucy episode when she takes lessons in culture. The instructor said, "There are 2 words you should never use. One is swell, the other is lousy." Lucy replied, "OK, what are the words?"
Here's the hilarious clip!😂😂
Gay (as in happy)
Golly, sounds good to me.😊
