Yes. I love spicy food. But that's not what I'm talking about here.
What I love is the word SPICY.
Remember the girl from Mean Girls who wants to make the word "fetch" popular? Well, I've been on a mission to make spicy popular. And it's catching on.
At first I started saying spicy in place of the word hot--which seems obvious. For example, "It's spicy out today" or "My husband is so spicy!"
Then I decided that spicy could also substitute for sassiness, snarkiness, wit, etc. "Wow, you are being spicy!" or "Love the spicy comment."
Of course, I use spicy to help tone down a contentious situation. For example, in class two students were rigorously debating and to help bring calm back into the classroom, I said, "This is a spicy conversations."
Turns out lots of people love my word. I've caught friends posting it in Facebook (my daughter is so spicy today!), students writing it in e-mails, Matt using it when he likes how I dress... It's catching on! YAY!
I love spicy! It's so fetch!
