Definition: Small puff of skin and fat just peeking over/under the seams of clothing. Not to be confused with “muffin top”, which is exclusive to the top of a pants band and an excessive amount of fat (see examples below).
Smooge usually affects populations of those not truly overweight, and of generally healthy self-esteem. Smooge most often rears its ugly head when the smooger is “asking a bit too much” out of their clothing. Primarily a female issue, but has been known to strike males as well. So WATCH OUT!!
Uses: When witnessing smooge, it is always best to look away and let it go. Smooge is not like having your zipper down or food in your teeth. The wearer already knows it is there and doesn’t want you to call attention to it. Doing so will result in hurt feelings, dirty looks, reduced self esteem and a potential crack at your own appearance-proceed with caution.
When a person complains of feeling/ or having a/ “smoogey (adj) day”, it is best to downplay the situation with statements such as “HARDLY!”, or “well, barely, no one can even tell”, or “you know, we all get a little smoogey sometimes” (my personal fav). This person will instantly become your friend, which will come in handy during other crisis’.
It is important to note that this word and its use is officially coined by April (the magnificent), and in so, it must be used properly, never abused, and never, EVER used as a weapon…I will know, and it will be bad.
Examples of smooge:
Classic Smooge, mostly smooths out when she stands up…the beer will eventually turn this to a full-blown muffin top *sigh*…
She’s asking more than a little bit too much out of those jeans…and her friend has already skidded straight past smooge. Cute tramp stamp though…
Other occasions of smooge, this can strike anywhere people!
