Skedaddle and Persnickety.
@Micki Pembroke I heard my mother say this one time. I said it out of the blue recently when I beat my son in a game online.
When someone goes on and on and won't stop complaining about something, they used to say....
ALRIGHT BUSTER, GIVE IT A DRINK...….
If your so smart, why aren't you rich..
My Grandfather used to say that to me all the time when I was young.....
Me, too (actually ambidextrous); so we are the ones who are in our right mind, @Lois Winters .
Love that word, sounds like an Irish dance - 'lets do the Shenanigan!' ……………..
You got dat right, Jim! See, I be going to doughs schools in my hood, as a little keed, and dey be mostly black, you uhnuhstan? I got down with my home boys, fallin' in with that jive they be layin' down, no lie. To dis day, mayn, I be fallin' back into my old slang n' shit, speakin' dat old "blackese," when I be wit dem homies who get down. That "mf" word be fallin' right in dare too, no lie, but I be keepin' it smooth, right now, fo y'all.
The above is not meant to offend anyone, and I truly apologize if anyone, in here, finds it distasteful. It is, in fact, how I speak, when I'm around those who speak likewise. So-called Ebonics is a different language from "normal English," as far as that form of speech most folks encounter, everyday, is concerned. It was the language of my youth, the slang of my younger days, on Chicago's South Side, for a good while, in my formative years. It's still a part of me.
Didn't realise it went back that far !
You know yeah, girl! That stuff be comin' up from duh South, n' all, n' be makin' it to duh ghetto areas of bigger cities n' shit, wayyyyyy back in de early 1900's.
The "modern" hip-hop/rap phrasing and slang that is now widespread, has been around a very long time.
When my (now broken up) band started doing hip-hop and rap, a few years ago, my twenty something sax player was amazed at my ability to "get down wit it." He actually texted me, after a rehearsal, to tell me how surprised he was. Old man bustin' a rap. Ooh.......
