Initial & shorthand corrections

If you're the parent of a teenager, like I am, then you know what it's like to get corrected by your child on all things hip, cool and anything else they think you're doing or saying wrong. In a recent post, I referred to my daughter's godfather - who is my best friend - as my BF. I have been told that BF = Boy Friend.

Imagine my surprise when my teen daughter was standing directly outside of the bathroom door when I came out to ask me who my BF was. I'd told her to read the post about my day and I didn't see how that was the most important part. As I was explaining she was slowly shaking her head "no" and giving me the "you're so wrong again" look.

Now, if any of you other parents knew this and didn't tell me then you should be ashamed of yourselves! Aren't we supposed to stick together? I've also written other posts that included my BF Michael (yup, I'm not gonna change it now) and no one said a word.

Well, I guess I'll change it next time.

Now I have to think of something to call my best friend and my best friend forever Frankie. This doesn't make sense to me because if BFF = best friend forever then why doesn't... you know what... why am I even trying to make sense of this?

What hip slang have you messed up? I just messed that up by saying hip, didn't I?
