I knew I could always edit later.
Here we are in the spring of 2008, and that day has come for ‘playah.’
Blake’s older brother, Garrett, uses it sarcastically to torment Blake. Here is the section where it’s used for the first time, in Chapter One:
“Haul ass, Playah,” says Garrett. “We’re outtie in five.”
Garrett started calling me ‘Playah’ after I acquired an official GirlFriend. I guess it’s better than Ass-wipe, my previous nickname.
So … yeah.
‘Playah’ is used up, and ‘outtie’ may follow it to the chopping block, too. Since the name of Blake’s brother was decided by poll, I thought I would turn you guys loose on my outdated slang.
Feel free to suggest alternatives in the comments. Please!
Okay, I'm off to bed with my stuffy head. See you - and your brilliant suggestions! - in the morning.
What word should be used instead of 'playah'?
