No, I don't mean understand what makes teenager do what they do; I mean actually understand what she is saying. Each gneration devel- ops its own use of the EngrigI,4anage. I suppose that my parents were at an equal loss with my use of the language. The other day she refereed to someone having a mullet. Now to me a mullet is a saltwater fish. Every time we go to the Gulf Coast I make it a practice to eat fried mullet at least once. Knowing that we are about 800 or so miles from any salt water I ask what this term meant to her. I got looked at as if I had two heads or so and was informed that a 'mullet' was a type of hair- cut. I never did quite understand exactly what it looked like. I suddenly realized how 'out of it, I was. I just did a search on the Internet for pic- tures of one and I am still not exactly sure about the term. A favorable term among teenagers today is 'sweet'. This is sweet or that is sweet. My generation probably would have called it neat and the '70s generation would have called it bad. Each generation has its own slang terms and I can accept this but what I find less acceptable is the present casual usage of prqjnity and sexual oriented words. Now the boys of my generation talked 'rough' among our selves and in our minds thus proved we were real men. We didn't talk that way around the girls and we dang sure didn't talk that way in front of our par- ents and other adults. Geezer attack com- ing. Today perhaps we have attained true equality, as it seems that the average 6th grade girl is capable and willing to talk in a way that would make a sailor blush. #%*?# this! #%*?# that! I am no longer surprised to hear this kind of language on the steps of the church. When I tell my daughter that some of her language is unacceptable she replies that most of her friends talk much 'rougher' than she does. I reply that how a person talks is the second thing that a stranger notices about you and ultimately the most impor- tant. How often have you got a favorab impression of someone until they ( their mouth? Old Ozark saying, "Itis to keep ones mouth closed and let think you are an idiot than to open prove it."
