What They Really Mean #1

This will be the first entry in a series I’m going to call “What They Really Mean.”  Like the title suggests, this will be a quick guide to what people really mean when they use a particular phrase. Kicking things off, today’s phrase is…

“free spirit”.

I’ve never witnessed anyone telling someone else to their face that they are a free spirit. This is because when people say “Oh, she’s such a free spirit”, they really mean “She wears bright orange knee-high socks and chases butterflies at age 35. She creeps the rest of us out.”

This has been What They Really Mean.
