Millennial vs. Gen X Slang Battle

For this edition of the Millennial vs. the Other (Older?) Generation, Shawn and I thought it would be fun to test each other’s knowledge of slang terms from our generations. This idea had to be done in video format, as you will soon see. When all was said and done, I think I knew more of his terms than he did mine, but a couple of them were close. You will have to see for yourself. If you have a few minutes, I think it’s worth your time to check it out. And if you have any comments or other slang terms to add to the discussion, please leave those comments below or on our Facebook page. And while you’re there, make sure you like our page!)
