Lots of times I say things and my kids look at me like I'm nuts. My kids are teenagers and think they know everything. lol
Here are just a couple of words or phrases that I've said recently and they had no idea what I meant. I think it would be fun to list some of yours. I'm sure there will be big differences between American and UK english words.

Time to pay the Piper
gallivanting
traipsing


That's just a couple to start. When I think of more, I'll add to the list.

Chores?
Volunteering?
Part time job?

I don't have a kid, but I'm sure he would hate me.

lol at your post.
I was talking about words you used as a kid, like slang or old words that don't get a lot of use anymore.


And Tentickles, I have no idea what these words mean. lol Could you write what they mean?

Deleterious
Kaboozle
Tabackle

Teenybopper.

That's bogue.
Hit the hay.
