Words that I rarely encounter

But seemed more common when I was growing up:

1. Fag: I'm fagged out from running all those errands.
2. Queer: The queerest thing happened to me this afternoon.
3. Gay: I woke up and was greeted by a gay morning.
4. Whinge: After all those errands, I started whinging about how tired I was.

Most of these words are mainly British use. Perhaps they are still common on the Continent.
