Generation gap?

After work today, I went to the store to run a couple of quick errands. While looking at Christmas cards in the holiday section, a girl walked up to the lady next to me and exclaimed, "MOM! Did you see that tree??? It's sick!" Her mom turned around and said, "The black and white one?" And again, the girl shouted, "Sick!! What a sick tree!"

It took me a couple of seconds to process this and had to turn around to see the tree myself to see if it was sick as in...cool....or sick as in ill looking. The tree looked pretty cool to me.

Does that make me sound really old...?

And I thought I was still young and hip! ;)

Don't feel too bad. I am 34 and this happens to me all the time.

I am fortunate to work in a college and the fact that I am surrounded by kids all the time kinda helps me be in the know about this kind of phrase, but I can totally relate with your experience! :)
