Things I Learned This Week On Urban Dictionary
As the Social Media Editor for Steve Madden, keeping a finger on the pulse is part of my job description. However, today’s pop culture memes are so fickle that they can be trending topics on Monday and considered archaic by Thursday. So whenever I am feeling out of touch with the vernacular du jour, I head to Urban Dictionary for a lesson in linguistics. I’d like to share some recently unearthed gems with you:
Octo-text: When a girl or guy texts you eight times in a row.
[that sh!t cray]
Her: where are you?
Her: we should talk
Her: i kinda like you
Her: please respond
Her: i dont know what to do
Her: come on talk to me
WDYHM: Short form of “Why do you hate me”
You didn’t invite me to your party? WOW WDYHM
Winnie-the-Poohing: When someone wears a shirt but no pants, like Winnie the Pooh.
[Donald Ducking would also work here IMO]
Dude, don’t sit there, Ron’s been winnie-the-poohing all over this living room.
Shower Fluffer: When one’s spouse or roommate takes the first shower of the day and gets the hot water running so for your shower, the availability of hot water is immediate.
I love it when my wife is the first one up and is my shower fluffer. I don’t have to wait for the hot water to kick in.
