naked vs. nekkid
So, an interesting conversation that just happened (and we’re about to leave to go over to some friend’s house…)
Me (to Matt): why are you walking around in your underwear?
Matt: this is what I’m wearing.
Me: well, I’m not going then.
Matt: okay, I’ll eat your share of bbq.
Me: fine, take your nekkid self over there and do that.
Matt: I can’t do that, ’cause the word nekkid doesn’t exist. I’ve heard of naked, not nekkid.
Me: Well, it exists.
Matt: can you spell that for me?
Me: Yes. N-E-K-K-I-D
Matt: (laughs) can you look that up on dictionary.com?
The point? The word nekkid does exist. It is what naked is when you are talking in a more slang, comfortable tone with someone you know very well.
There’s your definition.
UPDATE: Matt did get dressed, and we both ate way too much bbq. 😉
