Today's For Better or for Worse comic strip uses a number of slang terms that are unfamiliar to me. I don't know if that's because the strip is set in Ontario, or if it's because I'm an old fogey, but I suspect the latter. Two teenagers are discussing a friend:
April: Becky thinks she's so hot because she's going out with a guy in grade 12.
Duncan: Yeah, she's hangin' high!
April: She's only just turned 14. What would a guy who's 17 see in her?!
Duncan: You're kidding me, right?
Duncan: April, Becky is "hands on" . . . She's a "gig"! She's "roadside," man!
April: You mean . . . she's "been there"?
Duncan: Yeah . . . an' once you've "been there," you ain't comin' back!
