The 27 years old in me....

Sometimes I find it amusing to reflect on certain inspirations/experiences that gives me the ideas to write about certain topics.

So while I am enjoying all aspects of my dealings with Mr. Godiva, you cant help but sometimes run into a few disadvantages to dating someone significantly older than you. The following isn’t a big deal or what I would consider a dealbreaker, but it’s always something to think about.

So as a 27 years old woman dating a 56 years old man, there will be a lot of terms and “mainstream knowledge” that Mr. Godiva wont know about. I live in the era of being trendy, fly, bling, chic, Mac & blackberries, and mainstream entertainment. Whereas, Mr. Godiva is from the era of war babies, The Rocky Horror Show, Vietnam, and Elvis.

Again I love Mr. Godiva but I wanted to share the amusing aspects of being with a much older man.

We’ll start with the terminology or phrases I may use particularly when I am chillin/relaxing and in my social mode. At times I may use the following phrases or terms:

Butt (That joke was butt)- something that is horrible, wack, or lame.
What’s Crackin or what’s the deal? - What is going on?
Holla- bye, talk to or see you later
Fly/Hot- looks great, stylish
Jump Off- fuck buddy
Scrilla/Paper- money, currency
I’m Straight- I’m good, thanks but no thanks
My Guy- Number 1 contender, top player on my team (not my man, but close enough to my comfort level)
Bad Azz- Nice, exciting, dope
Whip- Car
Green, Weed, Trees, Kush (top quality)- marijuana (not hooch or doobie baby)
Monster, Full Throttle, Sobe- Energy drinks (coffee 2k)
Lay Low- Chill, relax, low key, mellow
Crib/Pad/Tilt- House, place where I lay my head or call home
Dip/Roll- leave, take a drive or ride
Crunk- Hype, Live, High Energy
Hater-jealous person
Thirsty- Needy


To this day I love this song that came from the show Family Guy, Peanut Butter Jelly Time. (LOL, its truly my shit). Anyway, I show my honey the video clip I downloaded and it didn’t really amuse him like it should have (in my opinion). Now, I’ll back up and say I introduced him to the world of those who watch this great show. So he missed that episode the song came from. But then again, do you know of a lot of 50 something years old watching Family Guy?

I still love my Godiva though…

I can deal with older people...since I tend to use some cockney slang and terms you had to be there to's the young kids that kill me. I'm only 28 and my slang is not old!
