You Need to Know This

Amidst the breaking news, you may have missed this cultural shift. As a long-time issuer of parental inanities, I have a lot of experience with "Helloooo,dad?" As in, "Is that some new rap singer?" followed by "Dad, it's "Fat Joe", hellooo, Dad?"

Well, we don't allow "helloo-ing" of the tired old parents anymore. But at least among twelve year olds I spend time with, the current substitute is "wooo-oo".

You have been warned. And if you already knew that, and this is old news, please.... don't "helloo" me.
