  1. Wicked....love it. Although, oddly my parents are both from the South Shore (of Boston)and never use it. I think it must be more recent?

  2. I've never understood cool beans. Why beans? Why not cool pineapple slices or something?

    I met my first New Englanders when I was in college. They were here for some summer work and they said "wicked awesome" all the time. A bunch of college students at my church picked it up too, and I still break it out once in a while. :)
