Do you get bored with expressions? I do. I avoid, “Awesome,” like an f-bomb. Okay. That’s not true. I occasionally f-bomb. Last year, Stacey Woods, a writer for Esquire’s Culture Blog, listed twenty-seven sayings or slang that had to go. This year she’s not messing around. She listed fifty of them!
I chose a few and came up with substitutions. I’m sure they will be the latest new expressions for 2015!
“Rockin’ out” is out.
This dog is ampin’ it with his jazz hands!
Being “over it,” is over.
Have you logged deflategate yet?
You may Only Live Once, but we’re tired of its randomness.
I am all about DWIDI. Don’t Wish It, DO IT!!!
This guy kinda overdid it…
“Actually” is unnecessary.
Fact. I really love new expressions.
All forms of “crazy” are no longer a thing.
There is no one more contorted than me.
I would like to replace “cool.”
A combination of momentous and monumental is monumentous.
Stacey threw out “dropping,” and maybe she has a point. The Broncos would be in the Super Bowl if they threw down instead.
Here’s one from last year. TV commentators are still using the old and tired adjective, “sick.” Maybe you could throw down hideous once in a while!
Taylor Swift applied to trademark, “Sick beat.” She must not have gotten the memo. “Hideous beat” sounds a lot better. By the way, mine are free to use!
