Wednesday Word of the Day – Teenagery

teenagery – teen-age-er-ee adjective

1: having the disposition of a teenager

2: marked by or resulting from having the mindset of a teenager, including but not limited to thoughts of invincibility, selfishness and boredom.  Also marked by the innate ability to do something illegal in front of a police officer.

Examples:

He may be in his 30s, but he sure seems teenagery when he plays that XBOX all damn day.

I always tell my students, don’t get caught doing anything teenagery (like loitering or tagging or smoking if you’re under the legal age) because we won’t get you out of a truancy ticket!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. LOL You can also substitute the name of your favourite teenager… for example, “that’s such a Janey thing to do” or “don’t be such a Steven.”

    I nearly bought a t-shirt once that read “don’t be a Richard” because I thought that was brilliant – especially since my name is Richard 😉

      • I teach at-risk youth at a charter school …middle through high school. It’s a bit of a non-traditional position though. I sometimes function as counselor, parent figure, tutor, tough love deliverer, receptionist, you name it. Wearer of many hats is a more apt description of what I do I suppose!

        Well Joy… as much as I’ve enjoyed our little “chat” as we’ve posted replies on each other’s blogs, it’s nearly midnight here and I must go to bed… otherwise I won’t be able to drag myself up in the morning LOL

        It was fun swapping comments LOL I hope you have a great night 🙂

        Clear skies,

        Richard
