When you listen how younger people speak – and here younger means most people below 50 – you’ll find that they use some specific terms, especially when speaking in a relaxed way.

For example, they use specific terms for parents:

stara mom
stari dad
    change like an adjective
starci parents (only in plural)

For example, I found this on the Internet:

Moja stara je 2 godine starija od mog starog. My mum is two years older than my dad.

Many other words have additional meanings. For example, the verb brijati (brije) shave is often used in a very unexpected meaning, basically behave or think in a specific, dedicated way, similar to a meaning of English have a trip (e.g. ego trip, guilt trip).

In the weakest meaning, it simply means think (but the implication is often irrational thinking).

Slang meanings of brijati (brije)
