Dats' it bro!
@rok2id, every language in every culture does this. Always cutting off words. ’Bro’ was originally pronounced ’bruh’ as in brother and not brō, which I hate!
For some reason those cut off or slang words make us feel more comfortable. Like a secong language of sorts. Only spoken by the ’Hip’ few. Although I never did quite understand what a ’Hep Cat’ was? Lol! (Yes I did!)
If you think about it, a lot of American slang or cut off words coming from the black jazz musicians were originally from slang words developed in the black south. Chittl(in) circuit anyone?
But I know you already knew this being a member of the Black Pack 2nd Brigade 1st Cavalry Division. We honor you! (In) ’22!
