Yesterday, I was riding the New York Subway and doing a crossword puzzle out of the AMNY express newspaper when I came across a clue No. 21 across, 4 letter word for CONFIDENT. I finished the clues around it before discovering the answer: SMUG. I totally had an epiphany on the packed subway train — Smug is confident. Smugger is a confidence that only indicates that a person has a clear sense of entitlement.
This became clear to me as I looked up from the paper that I noticed something Smugger was happening around me. Dudes were rocking this unusual color for the dreary New York monsoon season over the weekend. This color was reminiscent of the Ooze out of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise, which happened to be based in the sewers of New York.
So maybe that’s what happened — this new pop of color must’ve seeped into the minds of a couple of dudes; dudes that had the Smugger attitude written all over their sleeves, literally, in Neon Green.
