THE WORLD HAS CHANGED

I THINK I MAY BE OFFICIALLY GETTING OLD...AND THIS IS BASED ON THE 'LANGUAGE' I HEAR BEING USED AROUND ME ON A DAILY BASIS...I MEAN I KNOW OUR GENERATION WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FIRST ONES WHO ACTUALLY CHANGED THE LANGUAGE AROUND US...WITH A 'IT'S COOL', 'WHAT'S UP MAN', 'PEACE', AND OTHER ASSORTED SLANG I THOUGHT WE BROUGHT ABOUT A UNIQUE CHANGE IN OUR TIME...BUT THEN AS I LISTEN AT SOME OF TODAY'S SLANG'S' I DON'T UNDERSTAND EVEN HALF OF IT...EVEN OUR CANADIAN FRIEND MUSICIANS WHO ARE YOUNGER CANNOT BE COUNTED ON FOR A GOOD 'EH' ANYMORE UNLESS THEY'RE OLDER...NOW IT'S 'RIGHT'...YEP, JUST 'RIGHT'...SOON WE WON'T BE ABLE TO MIMIC THE 'EH' WHEN AROUND THEM IN JEST CAUSE THEY WON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT ME MEAN...NOW THINGS ARE 'SALTY'...OR THEY CAN BE 'CRAY CRAY'...EVEN THE SYMBOL OF #, OR HASHTAG IS NOW BEING USED AS AN ACTUAL WORD...AND WHEN ONE WANTS TO EMPHASIZE SOMETHING IS REALLY TRUE THEY SAY 'SOOF', (swear on our friendship)...AND 'WHEELING AND DEALING', WHICH HAS BEEN AROUND FOREVER NOW MEANS A 'RELATIONSHIP'...BUT NOT QUITE UP TO A REAL GIRLFRIEND/BOYFRIEND THING BUT THE 'WHEELING' PART MEANS THE FLIRTING STAGE AND THE 'DEALING' PART IS THE ACTUAL RELATIONSHIP...AND 'CATFISH' MEANS SOMETHING IS NOT ACTUALLY WHAT IT SEEMS OR IS SUPPOSE TO BE...AS IN, "I MET THIS LADY ON THE INTERNET WHO LOOKED SOO HOT...I ARRANGED A MEETING WITH HER AND SHE TURNED OUT TO BE A CATFISH"...AND THEN THERE WAS THE WORD 'HELLA', WHICH I WOULD HARDLY USE THINKING IT WAS SLANG FOR "HELL-OF"...NOW AS IT TURNS OUT IT'S ACTUALLY A REPLACEMENT FOR THE COMMON WORD 'REALLY'...SO I GUESS IF SOMETHINGS 'HELLA GOOD', IT'S REALLY GOOD?...(my head is gonna explode)...AND WHEN SOMETHING IS 'OVER THE TOP', GOOD, OR GREAT THEN 'WHAT A ROCKET"!!!...AND THEN THERE'S THAT WORD 'SELFIE' WHICH WE ALL KNOW ABOUT...YOU CAN HAVE A BIG 'GUAP' OF PEOPLE WHICH IS REALLY ONLY A 'GROUP OF PEOPLE'...AND OCCASIONALLY I HEAR THE WORD 'MOLLY' WHICH I FOUND OUT IS SLANG FOR THE 'DRUG ECTASY'..(for further info on that one ask Miley Cyrus)...ALL THIS AND MANY OTHERS HAS MY HEAD SPINNING...BUT AS A WRITER OF SONGS AND SUCH I MUST/NEEDS TRY TO KEEP ABREAST OF SUCH THINGS...I MEAN A FELLOW MUSICIAN RECENTLY SAID HE NOW BENDS OVER SO SELDOM, (as in tying his shoes, etc), THAT HE LOOKS AROUND WHILE HE'S DOWN THERE TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE HE CAN DO WHILE THERE SINCE HE IS AWARE IT WILL BE AWHILE BEFORE HE'S DOWN THERE AGAIN...WHEN I ADD ALL THIS UP I GUESS I HAVE TO SAY, "I'M GETTING OLD!!!"...FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW ME PERSONALLY HEARING ME ADMIT THAT MAY RESULT IN HEART FAILURE...BUT...I GUESS IT'S TIME TO SAY 'I'M STICKING TO THIS STORY'...THE MIRROR TOLD ME TO TO SAY THIS...T/F/S...
