Fleek - what's in and what's out for now.

Maybe you've heard some of these. Always fun to hear how people pick up and use words.

Fleek - (posted by Dan Blue on Urban Dictionary on Oct 2, 2003) Fleek  = smooth, nice sweet: "That was a fleek move you pulled on that chic." 

I never heard of it until this week. Some of us were at a meeting, and somebody said "The marketing was fleek."  I don't know if that means the marketing sucked, or was it on-point.

Verbal throw-up - Somebody is running on with his mouth...nobody is listening...and all the recipients hear is verbal barf.

Wall-huggers - any place, specifically airports, where folks are scrambling to get to an outlet to plug in their devices.

Un-fun - my friend referred to a portion of her work as 'un-fun stuff.' I get this, I like it, and it rhymes.

Towel-mop shuffle - we've all done this. Instead of getting on our hands and knees to wipe stuff up...we shuffle along with a towel under our feet to clean up the mess.

Nose-blind - this is from a commercial that most of us have seen on TV. Somebody has become oblivious to the stench that is around him/her. Says it all.

And my favorite phrase is:

"Think of me as an intelligent 5th grader." This is my friend, Mary, whose preparation comment is to Comcast, when she is looking for advice, an explanation, or a simple few words, to make her understand what the heck they have done to her TV or phone.
