Peachy.

Dandy.

Groovy.

Boss.

Fly.

The bomb.

When asked how something is, I’m bound to answer with any one of these words. I have for years. Only recently have I noticed the slightly amused, slightly confused looks people return when I do so (no sir, my day was not plump, orange, and delicious). To amend the woeful state of this generation’s slang vocabulary (terms like YOLO come to mind) here are links. Linkety links. They’re sitting there, waiting for you to click on them. You have no excuse… click a link, invest in the IQ of the country.
