Food for thought - I've been reading a lot of teen dialogue in tons of popular books in the local bookstores lately. It's been a real eye opener. Using current lingo really makes the characters come alive. Using phrases like... come on, you're kidding me, right?, unbelievable, you're pulling my chain, etc., etc., really hits home with the young kids. I'm going to revise some of my newest manuscript to include some of the lingo. I'm going to stay away from the derogatory ones like... that frigging thing and more. It's just not my style.
