Idioms

From The Outsiders and me

By: Devin Powell

1. Tuff; to the characters in The Outsiders this means cool p.12

Instead of tuff I would probably use the word swag. Swag means basically the same thing as tuff.

2. Socs; to the characters in The Outsiders this means the popular kids p.2

Instead of Socs I would probably say stuck up or snobs. That seems to be how Socs are.

3. Greaser; to the characters in The Outsiders these are the weird kids that are poor p.2

I would use the word thugs today. What I call thugs are the people that act the same as some of the Greasers.

4. Golly; Is a term for saying oh my gosh. p.77

I would use the term OMG, which is short for Oh My God.

5. Soused; Intoxicated with alcohol. p.46

Instead of soused I would probably say drunk.
