Raquel Saenz’s Responses:

  • Weird flex but okay:

Mhm I haven’t heard that yet okay. Weird flex, never heard anyone say that but it’s okay with me. That someone was weird but flexible. In other words sometimes they’re weird sometimes they’re not weird.

Used in a sentence: “Tommy was acting weird flex… but okay.”

  • Bet: 

Bet… yeah I have heard that many times. I’m sure that such team will beat another team.

Used in a sentence: I bet that this team is going to beat this other team on Friday night.”

  • Wig: 

I have no idea it could mean anything. Well you know sometimes girls, and boys too, fix their hair in a certain way that looks like a wig but it’s real, but that is the only thing that comes to my mind right now.

Used in a sentence: That person’s hair looks like a wig.

  • Let’s get this bread:

Let’s get this bread okay, well bread in some instances is another word for money okay, let’s get this bread, okay so you know let’s go for it and get the money.

Used in a sentence: Let’s go get this bread would be let’s go get this money.

Billy Thomas’ Responses:

  • Weird flex but okay: 

Weird flex but okay means that’s an odd way to do it, but I guess it works for you.

Used in a sentence: I’m going to try to do this without calling anybody out… ‘hey that’s a weird way to use the sink by stepping in it weird flex but okay.’

  • Bet: 

Bet is a term used to describe a situation where one suggests that they could do something and another person challenges them to do that.

Used in a sentence: So one person: ‘I bet I can jump that flight of 12 stairs’ [other person] ‘BET!’

  • Wig: 

Wig is an old political party mainly of parliamentary origin where everyone wore a white-feathered hair dress.

Used in a sentence: The”wig” party, now defunct in America, had awesome headwear.

  • Let’s get this bread: 

Let’s get this bread is evolutionary on the term ‘gettin’ dough’ which meant to a crew cash or some kind of monetary compensation. 

Used in a sentence: So me walking into school today, ‘let’s get this bread.’

Emily Fifer’s Response:

  • Bet: 

Bet. To make a deal with somebody would be my guess.

Used in a sentence: I bet you five dollars that I’m not going to know any of these words.

  • Let’s get this bread: 

Let’s get this bread? I would assume somebody’s hungry and wants to make a sandwich.

Used in a sentence: Let’s get this bread so we can use these turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving to make a turkey sandwich.

  • Wig:

Wig? Oooh I think I know this one. I think it means like fabulous. Okay so I got this from American Idol. Katy Perry… the guy who won the live vote came on and after he performed she said ‘wig.’ So I think that means like ‘lit.’

Used in a sentence: Every time I teach, I feel like my students would say ‘wig’ Mrs.Fifer.

  • Weird flex but okay: 

Oh, maybe ‘interesting point but I understand what you’re saying.’

Used in a sentence: That answer to my question was weird flex but okay.

Anthony Puzan’s Responses:

  • Wig:

Wig is being fake. Wig is not being true to yourself.

Used in a sentence: I don’t even know, I don’t know how to use this correctly… ‘Man he thinks he knows this, but man he’s all be wiggin.’

  • Let’s get this bread:

Let’s get this bread. I don’t know it kind of sounds like let’s get psyched up for this, let’s get this done, let’s get what we need.

Used in a sentence: I got a test today, let’s get this bread, let’s get it done.

  • Bet: 

BET! I actually, I don’t know, I had students in previous years use this in different connotations. It was just almost like an exclamatory kind of remark. Someone says something ‘BET.’ ‘I bet you can’t do this.’ It could also be used like ‘Bet you’re on, yeah, sure.”

Used in a sentence: Students says something to someone else. Other student yells out ‘BET’ as in like challenging ‘You can’t do this’ or ‘Bet you can’t do this’ or whatever, yeah. Good enough?

  • Weird flex but okay: 

I don’t know the definition of this, weird flex. I don’t know, sounds kind of funny, weird flex but okay. Like student getting ready to undertake something and like I would say ‘I don’t know if it’s such a good idea, but I mean it’s your parade, you could do whatever you want with it, kind of deal.’

Used in a sentence: So when someone says someone is going to do something and then another person’s response is ‘yeah sure I mean whatever you want, good luck I hope it works out for you, weird flex but okay.’
