I wasn’t trying to eavesdrop, but I couldn’t help overhearing this conversation between a couple of “seasoned citizens” at the eye clinic this morning.
Woman (while paging through a magazine in the waiting room): It says here that this is the flyest outfit ever.
Man: The what?
Woman: The flyest outfit ever.
Man: You are reading it wrong.
Woman: Flyest. F-L-Y-E-S-T.
Man (shaking his head): There is no such word.
Woman: And who would want to wear this to go flying in anyway?
I almost explained it to them, but then I thought, that is gonna be me and Ryan someday. There’s no way I would want some whipper snapper giving me the 101 on what words are hip, dope, legit or whatever they are saying these days. They can just think the editor of Cosmo let this typo “fly” by!
