    i wondered for a long time - what is 'boo'? why do (some) gay people use this word, definitely when they are talking on the phone with someone (no matter if male or female)?

    Back in the day Usher wrote a great song, around 1999 ft alisha keys using the terminology known as Boo.

    Boo was a person that you had an extremely deep affection for. So much in fact that no matter if you broke up, (as quoted somewhere in his song) you would still have an extreme feeling of care for that person.

    As the world grew older, Boo came into usage by many different people, though the origin of its meanings forever remain somewhere between the lines of someone you love and care for dearly (as you would family), and someone that simply you would love to bend over or be bent over by and banged doggy style into an oblivion of pleasure.

    It isn't anything to be embarrassed about, boo. You're still young, things that happened a few years ago seem like forever ago. I'm old, things that happened years ago seem like yesterday.

    "Boo" is no more a misspelling/mispronunciation of beau than "alley-oop" is a misspelling/mispronunciation of allez hop and "crawdad" is a mispelling/mispronunciation écrevisse.

    It's called a derivative. Languages evolve, change, and borrow. No big deal.

    After 2005.. everyone in my family call everyone Boo. To which i kinda smirk.

    When a guy i barely know ar a bar calls me boo "What up Boo?" (and yes.. 9 times out 10 they are black or ghetto white- not that there is anything wrong with homo thugs... it's sort cute) I sort of do an invisable eye roll and feel slightly icky. a bit gross. dunno why. I just don't like the term. "Boo"... WTF do i do with that? So i'll roll with it.


    I'll be a bar or club and a homo thug or queen will be like "Can i hollar at you Boo?" and then i'll break out my surfer/Hippie Californian accent that at times i will exaggerate purposefully and will respond "Ahhhh. I'm good MAN... How goes it dude.. i'm chilling out.. hanging around. This bar smells Grodey bro."

    After i do that.. the guy who wanted to holler at me, his boo, is not gone. Puff. Smoke. Gone.

    Ha, nice. On my iPod. Still listening in 2012. Crazy this song is over 15 years old. Crazier still the young-ins (younger-ins?) have never heard it.

    My boyfriend told me tonight he'd never seen "Ghost" and didn't know what I meant by 'ditto' in response to him saying 'I love you.' The kids aren't alright, I tell ya.
