Are you a boomer struggling to understand the millennial in your life? A new Herald series, Who Wants To Be A Millennial? is here to help.
"That's lit. You slay. Throw some shade."
Millennial lingo is becoming increasingly complicated and a new mixed bag of sayings is making it hard for the oldies to keep up.
Don't worry, we're here to help with our new "game show", Who Wants To Be A Millennial?
• More work, more sleep: New study offers glimpse of daily life as a millennial
• Millennials buying houseplants to improve their moods
• Premium - Millennials take pot shots at Boomers, but Generation X rules the roost in Parliament
• How millennials have ruined dinner parties
Each week, resident boomer (okay, he's actually only 48) Chris Reed, will spin a wheel containing eight bits of millennial slang. When it stops, he'll try to work out what the word, or words, it stops on means.
If he gets stuck, which let's face it, he almost inevitably will, our resident Cool Young Person Sinead Corcoran will help him out.
WORD OF THE DAY: "MOOD"
With a confident shuffle in his chair, Chris says he thinks he "might know this one".
He attempts to use "mood" in a sentence: "I've got big mood."
He tries again: "I've got big mood about the new Star Wars film."
He tries a different tack by sharing that, as a child, his mum would often tell him to "stop being in a big mood."
Sinead can work with that. She explains that, these days, a big mood is considered a good thing.
For example: "If you see someone having a meltdown in Sylvia Park, lying on the ground scream-crying because Christmas shopping has gotten all to much for them, that's a Big Mood," says Sinead.
"It's relatable content. Millennials love seeing other people failing. It makes us feel like our own lives aren't that bad after all - and that we're all in this together."
