I’m screwed

From If You Want My Advice . . ., an article about things people in their 50’s wish they knew in their 20’s:

Cleanse your language of certain callow affectations common to your generation, for they will not serve you well later in life. I, for example, employed the word “groovy” well into my twenties, until I once used it as a panelist on a TV political talk show, while discussing the sociopolitical ramifications of a gubernatorial veto. The studio audience actually laughed. In your case, when being interviewed about your nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, you do not want to say, “I was, like, No way, and the president goes, For realz, yo, and . . .”

A fine piece of advice. In fact, word!
