As mentioned last week, Wednesday is the day that I will highlight some American English slang.  Usually phrases that I said frequently throughout the week.

the skinny

This is information that you really want to hear about or need.
Give me the skinny about the concert!

boo-boo

This is a cut or bruise, when you hurt yourself, usually used with children. Or it can also mean a mistake that you did.
Did baby fall down and get a boo-boo?

buck

Although this means a male deer, in slang it means a dollar.
Hey, can you give me a buck? I wanna buy a coke.

bummed

This means to be disappointed about something.
I’m so bummed that my package didn’t come in the mail today.
