The Teenager Dictionary

Here it is the final definative dictionary of teenager speak.
I finally convinced my daughter and her friend Michelle aka
Pandora to write it up for me.
.
Actually Michelle took it over so I have to give the credit to her.
So then next time your teen says something you'll know what they said, and s/he wont roll their eyes at you and say mom/dad your so out of it.

Hi Janice ~~ No wonder we cannot understand some of those terms. Nice work to compile a dictionary, thanks to Michelle.
Thanks for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed Carl's story. Both my son Jon and I are both well, thank you. You have taken on a big writing job, Janice. Good luck with it.
Take care, Love, Merle.

H Merle,

I'm glad your both doing well.

Well on Nanowritmo; I'm at 20,500 words right now; which is the half way mark so I'm not doing too badly.

Take care,
Your Lady Jan~
