Guy was tooling around the South End today in a pickup with Georgia plates sending a message only Bostonians would get.
I don't get it.
It wasn't clicking for me after staring at it for a bit, but yeah, now it's obvious.
The first person I ever heard say that was from Pembroke. To her Boston was practically a foreign country. I met her in Vermont, and she probably knew Vermont better than she did Boston.
Let me also say that she was wicked smart, and wicked beautiful. And sometimes just wicked.
Strangely, one of the few adjectives that wicked-as-adverb doesn’t seem to modify is wicked-as-adjective...
I grew up in MA exurbs where a trip to Boston was a once-in-a-lifetime event for many residents, but I was well familiar with the expression 'Wicked pissa'.
How do we know it’s a boy?
Might have been his mama’s truck.
because the RMV might object. (License plate rules tend to be pretty strict.) But GA officials may not have known what it meant.
Nothing to do with the message, everything to do with the 6 character limitation.
As someone who grew up in JP in the late 70s and hasn't left and who has been told by my friends that I could stand at Logan and get $5 from tourists to just here a real Boston accent, I can assure you that "Wikkidpissah" went out with the Valley Girl shit. Now excuse me while I get Awwwl fukktup!
And asked where your from while out of state. Most people say Boston. Drives me insane when I ask what part. Springfield?
