My Boss Post on (not) Being Boss

My Boss Post on (not) Being Boss and BenBoss… That boy is so boss!

Remember when that was such a hip thing to say?  Boss.
Boss, according to the UrbanDictionary, was actually made popular in the 1950’s but dropped out of fashion in the 60’s. No one told my friends though - in the late 80’s and early 90’s “boss” was semi-popular. Back when I wore flannel shirts with birkenstocks. Back when I bought Nirvana, Faith No More and Pearl Jam on cassette. Back when I was going to be a photographer or an artist. I was anything but boss.

It amazes me the things that people say and why they are popular and how they caught on. Like – like. I use to say that in between like every other like work, ya’know. And, what about, aiight? Who said that first and who that aiight should be an acceptable pronunciation for all right? My husband use to try and get me to say it because I never can… I use all the syllables when I speak, at least most days. He thinks it is funny. Swear. Word. Boss.

I hate following anyone under the age of 23 on Facebook or Twitter because slang has to be spelled out… or not spelled out depending on how you look at it.  It drives me insane to see normally intelligent; college attending relatives make up spellings or spell things phonetically in their updates. There is no reason for this and for goddess sake, it does not look smart. It is also aesthetically unpleasing. Bss?

I guess it is their way of speaking in code, which would be fine, if you are twelve but please, please, I am on my knees begging you – stop! Now, that would be boss!

This does make me wonder just how boss I would be if I was 15 or even 20 years younger, now, when I think about the things the kids say and do these days and I have to say - I would not be boss, again.
