With the 80s came the use of the word rad. The beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made it popular when talking about something awesome or really cool. And like a lot of other pretty odd words and phrases, it caught on. I definitely used the word back then, and I'm pretty sure it's slipped out again since. Do you ever recall using the word rad?

  1. Haha, I had to go on my LJ and find the sort of "transcript" for this conversation that I had with Steve around the first of November 2008:

    We were in Disney World for Halloween and talking about Rock-n-Roller coaster (Steve had just ridden it for the first time).

    "Indoor roller coasters are so rad! ::pause:: Did I seriously just say 'rad'?" - Steve
