What Grinds My Gears: Dim Lituations

Ya know what grinds my gears? When people refer to every place where 100+ people have gathered as “lit.” Just because a bunch of people cram into a small space (i.e. a club), doesn’t make it “lit.” No one is dancing, smiling or showing other signs of merriment, yet you’re dubbing it “lit.” By that logic, the following would all be examples of “lituations”:

a) “Man, that plea deal wasn’t so bad — the yard be lit!”


b) “Write down this fun fact for tomorrow’s quiz, kids. ‘Government-funded soup lines during the Great Depression were lit’.”


c) “The ship that came in yesterday was lit, James. I fetched 50 slaves for a nominal fee.”


So, moving forward, recognize that while a densely populated party venue is indicative of noteworthy promotional skills, it does not suggest a blazing blowout. #GoodDay
