Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, but I got back to the dorm late and had quite a bit of homework to do, so blogging wasn’t high on my list of priorities. Anyway yesterday I was reminded of my sister when I was browsing the news and found that the government is releasing the 1947 census to the public. My younger sister S, the middle child, has taken to using archaic slang as of late and I’ve had to put up with comments such as “That’s the bee’s knees” and swell as of late. Well I decided that I would dedicate a blog post to historical slang, more specifically the 1920’s and 1930’s. So here we go.
Other lovely slang words are:
All Wet- no good
“Now you’re on the trolley”- now you’ve got it
Jake- Okay as in “everything is jake”
Darb- excellent person
Berries- similar to bee’s knees an expression of appreciation
So anyway I wish you all a great Easter weekend and enjoy the relative warmth.
