the Mogwai

Based on Saturday night's festivities (more to come), Roop and I just coined a new term.

Gremlin (noun or verb) - that tendency of friends, usually male, to pull abrupt personality shifts from charming/witty/humorous to "not so much" after consuming 3 or more alcoholic drinks.

Ex.:


Dude, after the tequila shot, he pure gremlined and was hitting on every woman in the bar.

He's usually so upbeat and fun to talk to, but he turns into a gremlin and becomes a total conspiracy theorist if he hits the sauce.

They die when exposed to sunlight, you know.

I guess one should not "feed" the gremlins alcoholic beverages after midnight, either.

My name is wt. And I am a, [sniff], gremlin.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. And petting Gizmo.

Now, that's the sort of brilliant term coinage I expect from you, Ms. Mais Non.
