Vocabulary notes (text only) explain key vocabulary and phrases from the interview.

full on

I had the full on lumberjack beard.

When something is full on, that means it is complete or the highest level it can get. Notice the following:

  1. He had the full on hippie look going.
  2. We are expecting the storm to hit us full on tomorrow.

go through

Let's go through these.

When you go through something, that just means you view it, often to discuss it. Notice the following:

  1. Let's go through all the chapters in the book.
  2. Please don't go through my pictures. I don't want anyone to see them.

grow in

The sides of my beard don't grow in.

Teeth and hair can grow in. They are gown in when they reach full size or reach sizable length. Notice the following:

  1. My son's teeth are starting to grow in.
  2. My beard still needs to grow in a little bit.

wispy beard

I get a real long wispy beard.

Something that is wispy is thin and twisted, so a wispy beard is a thin beard that is long and a little tangled. Notice the following:

  1. The air was filled with wispy smoke from the cigarette.
  2. He was always stroking his wispy beard when thinking.


It is a very groovy style.

When something is groovy, it is cool. The word groovy was popular in the 60's and 70's, but not so much today. Now it often refers to something from the 60's or 70's. Notice the following:

  1. He has a groovy hairstyle.
  2. Those tie-died bell-bottom pants are really groovy.
