In honor of “slangaholic” author Randall Platt, and all the fabulous expressions in Hellie Jondoe, to enter the contest to win a signed copy of our featured book, leave a comment here or in one of the other Hellie-themed posts this week about your favorite out-of-date slang expression. In other words, what’s your favorite slang term no one ever says anymore but you wish they still did?
Our contests usually run for one week, but I’ll be out of town at a friend’s wedding next Friday through Sunday, so you have until Sunday Feb. 21 to come up with your grooviest, raddest word or phrase. I’ll announce a winner Monday Feb. 22. Have fun!
