Copacetic Man, AOK

One of the words my high school friends and I would say to sound “important”.

My youngest and I were cleaning up the kitchen after dinner tonight, and he used the word “copacetic” in a really sarcastic manner. So I asked if he knew what it meant.

It turns out he heard it recently, and thought it sounded “important”.

We had a little discussion about his vocabulary, and the importance of knowing what you are saying.

Then I had a bit of a chuckle. “Copacetic”, yea man.

    • It’s fun to see the connection. He’s picked up weird interests from his dad and me. My love of cartoons, books, and big words. His dads love of mechanical things, and doodling the same figures in the margins of his class notes.

  1. Think it could be used as a substitute for cool, or groovy? If not, I’ve used it in place of satisfactory, though often falling short of complete satisfaction.. Do you think that’s a correct usage? BTW “copacetic” is one of my favorite words. I think it was used a lot by my parents in conversation. I think they knew what it meant when they used it, though I suspect they also applied it to situations where things were merely in good, as opposed to excellent, order.
