A seventy-four year old attempting to stay current with a voguish vocabulary

 
 Feeling like a dinasaur, not understanding the younger generations language the same as mine, I look up their words. Not understanding the language on the media I refer to Wikipedia and online dictionaries. Then I make a flip card lexicon.
 
 
 
With the New Year approaching, I decided to turn a new leaf. I would act completely out of character wishing my grandchildren with pop culture language with these sentiments:
  Have a "RAD New Year. Bright as LID s on high! Without Fucking circuit breaking!
