Ever wonder what happened to the awesome phrases you used to say from back in the day?

On a recent conversation with my 14 year old daughter, she used the phrase, “that’s cringy”, and it made me start thinking of all the phrases from the 90’s and 2000’s that died.

Phrases like, “Cool Beans,” and “Getting’ Tipsy,” were all the rage.

The 90’s and 2000’s were filled with all kinds of crazy sayings. A testament to my age and having four kids, I can truthfully say that many of those once popular phrases have completely died.

Check out these awesome phrases:

Awesome Phrase #1 “Whassup”

Awesome Phrase #2 “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It”

Awesome Phrase #3 “Whatever”

Awesome Phrase #4 “That’s Hot”

Awesome Phrase #5 “Keeping it Real” and “Da Bomb”

Awesome Phrase #6 “Did I Do That?”

Awesome Phrase #7 “I See Dead People”

Awesome Phrase #8 “Bling-Bling”

Awesome Phrase #9 “Whoa”

The Takeaway

While so many of these have all but disappeared from pop culture, that doesn’t mean they can’t do a big comeback. For fun, why not try saying a few of these to your kids or friends. Try recording their facial expressions when they hear these phrases. Then post to Tik Tok or Instagram Reels to see if they go viral. If you do, be sure to tag us @atomic_mommy.
