Cool beans

If I mess up and use any of these, one or both of my daughters shakes her finger and says, “That’s on the list.”  That is also how they indicate when I have used a new term that is prohibited.  The list keeps growing.

They also object when I use slang from my own generation, even when I use it ironically.  My family never got on the groovey train, but we used it as a joke all the time, but now that’s banned too.

Don’t tell my kids, but I sometimes use these words with my college students.  They indulge me and are usually amused.

One tries to maintain one’s dignity as one ages.
