Just been asked this by youngest GB (who was grinning in the certain knowledge I wouldn’t know what she was on about).

It marks the first time I’ve been totally at a loss to understand anything in a sentence a young person has said to me, in context.

Has this happened to you yet? If so what was the phrase? I don’t think anything has made me feel quite as out of touch :lolol:

I’d just ask her to tell you who sold her the drugs, and then ask if you can have some.

Alternatively go on urban dictionary, which suggests it’s a term used to denote that the wearer’s outfit is (or should) give the wearer extreme confidence/swagger. Although she’s got it wrong, it should be dripfit. Do feel free to let your daughter know she’s being corrected by an elderly gentleman.

That’s not advisable. Mainly because half her DNA is mine.

"Is my fit drip?"

"Is my outfit stylish?"

"Might it be, perchance, that my attire pleases the eye in a sartorially elegant way?"

To be fair to your daughter, fit in this context appears to be slang for gear/clobber and drip or drippy roughly translates as extremely cool.

Heaven help us all.

A couple of times I have had a drip (an intravenous boost of vitamins) that has aided me warding off a cold and keeping me, therefore, fit in the past. And that’s what I thought it was but Urban Dictionary came to my rescue to continue my education…

Thank God for Google for us old timers :

Fit is a shortening of outfit. It can relate to carefully selected streetwear or even a digital wardrobe in a video game. Drip or dripping is a way to compliment another by remarking on the absolutely superb quality of their clothing or accessory selection

I showed my 27 year old daughter this and she got it right :thumbsup:

But then admitted it was a complete guess and she is now feeling very middle aged :down:
