1. expressing lack of interest or enthusiasm; boring
"Meh, I'm not impressed with this restaurant so far.
"A lot of his movies are…meh."
2. unenthusiastic; uninterested
"My friend was kind of meh on our lunch date yesterday. She was barely talking and constantly checking her phone.
1) another way to say excited.
I just booked a weekend trip to Prague. I've always wanted
to go. I'm gassed!
2) To be overly confident; arrogant
Mark is totally gassed. He always talks about his
huge muscles and how hard he works out.
DAT / DOE:
DAT: Used at the beginning of this type of expression; means THAT.
DOE: Used at the end this type of expression, means THOUGH.
This expression (dat + noun + doe) is used to add (positive or negative) emphasis on something.
If I love a certain hairstyle, I could say: "Dat hair, doe."
if I dislike a certain hairstyle, I could still say: "Dat hair, doe."
To be sneaky; able to trick, steal or scam right in front of someone without them noticing.
I can't believe you bought that car! The salesman totally finessed you with a crazy high interest rate!
When all communication from the person you are dating suddenly stops, with no explanation as to why you have been dumped.
My friend was dating this guy, and he totally ghosted her. What an ass!
When a 'ghoster' (see above) suddenly resumes communication after a long period of not communicating, like a zombie back from the dead.
I can't believe he's zombieing her! She hasn't heard from him for ages. He totally ghosted her, and now he wants to meet up?! I don't think she'll go back to him.

Have a TREMENDOUS weekend, everyone! 😎
In English, tremendous is a very good thing or something very great in amount/size/degree.
Last week, I was describing our new puppy's bad behaviour to someone (in Italian) and they said (in Italian) "Oh no! He's tremendous!" I learned that tremendous isn't used the same way in English vs. Italian.
💬⤵ (Comment Below!)
How is 'tremendous' used in your language? Is it similar to the English meanings, or can it be used in a negative context like one of the ways it's used in Italian?
Be careful Italian, Spanish and French English learners! Café does not mean coffee. ☕
Confusing, right? Well, that's English for you! 😁 Sometimes we take foreign words and use them differently in English. In this case, café is a location/establishment, a coffeehouse.
