He looked at me with a face that said, "I think she's speaking a foreign language, and has possibly actually lost her mind and/or just used some phrase very incorrectly".
Uh, no. I did not use the phrase incorrectly. My much older husband was just not hip to the cool new phrases like Yolo.
YOLO is an acronym for "you only live once". Similar to carpe diem or memento mori, it implies that one should enjoy life, even if that entails taking risks. The phrase and acronym are used in youth culture and music, and were popularized by the 2011 song "The Motto" by Canadian rapper Drake.
That's right. I'm still cool. I may be 8 weeks away from turning 30, but I still know cool things like Yolo.
And so began the Yolo education in our household....
We watched yolo YouTube videos...
I had to educate the guy about such important matters as yolo.
And now, he's a Yolo master.
That's right Miss. Mollie. You're parents are totally hip. We know what yolo means.
