one person’s slang is another’s dead language

Some time last week during our company outing I was given the opportunity to choose a carbonated drink. Wanting the most “oomph” I said I’d like “high-test” (versus diet, caffeine free, etc) and the person I was talking with looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
