The Cat’s Meow

And other 20’s slang. I actually knew some of these because my Grandma was a Flapper. She told stories of how she and her friends would bind their breasts flat to fit in their beaded shimmy-dresses to go to the dance hall in Chicago after work. Even well into her eighties she could still Charleston and after a couple of glasses of giggle juice would have been happy to demonstrate, natch’. Do you recognize any of these? Do you think we should revive any?
