And so the word begins to catch on..
We have this friend named Manny
. I saw him on one of the first night dives I did with Matt and then not again for months.. See, Manny often backs out of plans or does not show up when expected. Alli & I started using the phrase "Manny out" when speaking of flaking, as in: Sunday morning, we Mannied out on a dive because we were out late the night before. I teased Manny about it, and next thing I see..stacey t.: i hear you and alli have a wager
Manny : we do?
stacey t.: yeah
stacey t.: about your dir checkout dives or whatever
Manny : i wont manny out on the class dives
I just about died when I saw that. MANNY is using the phrase NAMED FOR HIM. Oh god, it's totally going to catch on now.
Later, he shows his acceptance by defining the word for me:
Manny : manny (verb): to break plans on something you have not committed yourself to or to break plans on something youve committed yourself to and pay the price for it
