My Boom

My Boom

" My Boom" is a phrase I came across recently whilst surfing the web. It's a phrase the Japanese use when describing a current fad, or something that one is obsessed with at the moment.
From time to time, my boom is words and word origins, so naturally I had to investigate this phrase. Luckily, I have 5 relatives that speak Japanese, a convenient source of information. I asked one of them, and was quickly told the correct pronunciation.....Say it with me....My Booom-uh... not Boomer, Booom UH.

So, I guess the Japanese borrowed the word boom and made it their own.

I like it.


I use it.


I get blank stares.

What?

Your What?

My Boom is confusing people by using the phrase "My boom"

What is your Boom?
