Maybe it’s picked up in our Washington state vocabulary through the smog from San Fran, or it could be from osmosis? Perhaps it’s the fact that a ton of people who live in Washington state are transplants from California.
I’ve even caught myself saying a ton of these California slang words for years and never noticed where I picked them up. I know that it’s not from watching The OC or Beverly Hills 90210, or even Melrose Place.
It could be picked up from mainstream pop music, like that one catchy song by No Doubt, "Hella Good", or "Tell Me When to Go" from E-40.
