Abbreviation of "look at that" or "look at this," typically uttered shrilly in public places by small children seeking to draw attention to mundane objects that they, for some reason, consider fascinating.
This is a combination of "look here now,or just plain "look"." It is used when you are somewhat frustrated with a person, and want to get their attention real quick and advise them they are incorrect, are missing the point, or do not understand, and therefore you will explain or clarify the situation to them all over again.
Lookit! If you wanna go to the rodeo, you have to wear cowboy boots. Plain and simple!
