Sentenced to be slanged until dead, dead, dead

A slang word is on its last legs, gasping for air when someone over the age of 35 seriously uses it in a sentence, then does a little smirk after they say it like, “Hey, look at me, I just said a word the kids use, aren’t I cute?”

It’s the end of my career: I’m 35! But I never smirk…
