Why does my son think everything is "tight"?

Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies

The Suite Life of Zack and Cody - castOkay, television networks, I want answers. Which one of your programs taught my six-year-old son Jaxon to refer to everything cool as being "tight"  - as in, "That move I just did on Ultimate Spider-Man on the Xbox was tight!" My wife believes he picked it up from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody on The Disney Channel. A pity, if true. I used to like that show. (Outside of the way it rips off its theme song from "Ballroom Blitz", of course.)

I don' t know why this bothers the hell out of me. Perhaps it's the sexual implications of the term that bug me. In the end, I think it's despondency. If Disney or Cartoon Network or whoever have burrowed themselves this deeply inside my kids' brains, I have no hope of ever getting them out.
