Sentence: “Girl, you are straight agro when you drive!”

Sentence: “You’re looking totes hot right now!”

Sentence: “Damn, dawg, my game is too legit!”
6.) #ROFL (v.): abbreviation for “rolling on the floor laughing.” Meaning the expression of hilarity.
Sentence: “OMG I’m ROFL my FAO” (Oh my gawd, I’m rolling on the floor laughing my fucking ass off).
7.) unfriend (v.): made-up word for no longer following an individual on Facebook. Meaning Facebook retribution for injustice of or apathy to an individual’s newsfeed.
