Slang Gang Word of the Day - Triple Threat
August 22: prefill
When, in cases of extreme thirst, a person using a soft-drink fountain fills the beverage container, chugs it, and then fills it again before sitting down to eat.
Person 1: Hey man, why did it take you so long to get a soda?
Person 2: I was prefilling my cup; I've been thirsty all day.
**And for the love of all that's holy - DON'T bogart the soda fountain space!
August 23: I take my leave
A polite way of saying goodbye.
John: The coffee was great Mark, my compliments.
Mark: You are being too kind. Do you want some cookies?
John: I'm sorry, but I have a meeting in a few minutes, I take my leave.
**I guess manners are making a comeback?
August 25: manther
The male version of a cougar; an older man who preys on younger women.
"Mr. Smith is such a manther, did you see his new girlfriend? She's got to be less than a quarter of his age. Awesome."
"That Smith geezer was hitting on my granddaughter at the banquet. What a hideous manther."
**Michael Douglas anyone?
