Quote: Definitions

Overheard from someone perusing Zivug Zone:

“He says he’s ‘with-it.’ Why do the guys all say they’re ‘with-it’? It’s like the guy’s equivalent of ‘bubbly’.”

Yuck. I hate “bubbly.” Also “sparkling.” And, now that it’s been pointed out, “with-it” is kind of awful too. That’s really just another way of saying “I think I’m cooler than my friends,” isn’t it?

  1. It means, “Appearances to the contrary, I’m not as bookish, serious, ideological and insular as one might assume. I may even have a nodding acquaintance with pop culture and secular pursuits. But I can’t guarantee that this will persist past our one-year anniversary.”

  2. Yeah, I always thought “with-it” means “unashamedly can quote Simpsons, Seinfeld and Spiderman.”

  3. zivug zone is so sketchy. i get the weirdest messages. what kind of people are on that site anyway? oh wait. me.

    (my friend made me join, its all her fault…but maybe there’s a guy on there whose friend made him join too? hope springs eternal!)
