and I have a ton of interviews to post for you guys including Rising Star, and an interview with a well known social entrepreneur. So keep checking to stay updated
Tennis shoe- (n.) sneaker
“I am going to Foot Locker to buy some new tennis shoes.”
Yes! Out here in the mid-west they refer to what you may know as ‘soda’ as pop. Personally, I am used to hearing people use this word in shows like Leave It To Beaver and it reminds me of being in the 1930′s. But actually the whole word for soda is soda pop.
Pop- (n.) Soda, soda pop, products such as that of Coke, Pepsi, Sprite etc. ex: “Hey we are ordering pizza, do you guys want some pop with it?”
Murk- to leave.
ex: “Yo where did everyone go?”
Cakin’- On the east coast we know this word as ‘JONES’in’ In general this word means to talk to a potential mate, or current mate on the phone to late hours of the night.
ex: “Jordan was cakin’ it with his girl.”
Y’all know I am from NYC but currently go to school out in the mid-west. And I know a lot of you who read are from all over. But the difference in languages in different places just baffles me. It’s like another language that exists in different parts of the country. Well, to provide a good chuckle and also enhance and expand your minds to new vocab I will be starting up this “mid-west” word of the week. Here’s the first one:
Nappy: (adj.) old, dusty, bummy, not fly.
example: “He think he is fly but he stay wearing that NAPPY ass hoody.”
Ha ha, more to come…every week. There are SO many. What are some other weird words you heard when coming to a new place?
