SWAG – IS IT YOUR ATTITUDE .... OR WHAT
Turn on the TV, listen to music, interact with yourfavourite RJ or indulge in a simple conversation with friends, relatives and random yahoos ....you cannot miss the word SWAG ... mentioned a couple of thousand times!! Despite the hyperbole`, it still doesn’t refute the fact that SWAG is now the mantra of the current wanna-be generation.
What, pray tell, is ..... a SWAG? A word that appropriately rhymes with BRAG, reflects a variety of expressions, emotions, gesture and posture. For instance, you can Swag a welcome, dance with a Swag, Swak – A – Walk, Talk - a - Swag and to round all these SWAGS, there’s also the perennialbannoteraswagger!!! I’m still reeling with the utmost idiocy of an attempt to generalize the mien.
People, you seem to be missing the vital point here. SWAG is a genderless, emotionless, and clueless abbreviationthat mostly indicates an action, that’s neither here nor there!!! It is also a ridiculous me-too attempt at mimicking a relatively similar abbreviation that was rather endearingly romantic.
Shed this myth that the word denotes your level of suave, because it doesn’t. All it manages to do is create an image of callousness, insensitive and bawdy conduct. Discard it and move on. It has outlived its shelf life. SWAG is a GAG without a WAG!!! Pun intended.
