Do you find that relating to some people is somewhat hit or miss. What I mean by this is, do you say words or phrases that get lost in translation when talking to people who are twenty years younger at the most if you are from generation X? As someone from generation X, I even know some figures of speech from my grandparent's generation. These days some teens and young adults make things up as they go along, and it becomes an off the cuff vocabulary. Scary? Clickish? Who knows? I hope that some of these young people can be positively as creative with their actions. In my observation, parents have their work cut out for them. Especially in this day of growing generation gaps. Is it harder to understand younger people in this culture of creative communication? Are young people going against the grain of societal norms? Perhaps they are asking, "Why be normal?". Can this question be answered?
